"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

    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
