"LITTERING"!! it is starting already !!

7 posts in this topic

I have not had the oppertunity to get on some early ice action.. But a couple buddie's told me they have already noticed "LITTER-GARBAGE" on a couple lakes they tried..They picked up what they could, since they are not "GARBAGE - POLICE".. Nobody is perfect, but it is something that is not a requirement to carelessly throw trash etc.. on the lake and not even think about it "one iota".. Sometimes things happen when the wind is "whipping".. "but" how is it going to be picked up?? The fish?? the birds?? or maybe just sink to the bottom after ice melts?? Nobody will know.. It is not difficult to take the trash etc.. with you.. That being said, I wish everyone a fun,happy,safe, ice angling season..Thank you....

Some people are pigs plain and simple. What is with all of the quotations?

Its sad but all we can try to do is leave the lake cleaner than when we came. If that means we need to pick up a few extra items, the lake will be better off in the end.

The quotations were used to help awareness and application of deterring, slowing down, diminish, this propblem that seems to be getting worse the past few years.... that's all.... good luck and have fun this ice angling season.... thank you....

Yea, people suck. I believe it's a few and not the majority that litter. I will pick up what I see when I'm out on the ice. It's frustrating cause what you leave will end up in the lake at thaw.

Couldn't agree more Harvey!

I was out a few times this weekend and already witnessed some debris flying around. Mommy can't pick up for the kids all the time...grow up and take care of your trash piggy's. Good to hear others are doing something about it. Every little bit helps. wink

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
