Take it with you lazy pigs

Recommended Posts

Did anyone read the article in the Outdoornews about all the 1 lb propane cylinders people are leaving on the ice? It's on page 8 if anyone is interested. With the ice season winding down I wonder how much litter lazy pigs are going to leave behind. IF YOU BRING IT WITH YOU, YOU CAN TAKE IT HOME TOO!!! mad.gif

this for one is a subject that gets brought up on this site all the time and like always stated , the ones that do this are unfortunatly not reading this. probabaly because they do not have the abuility to read. i am sorry but when i drive off my favorite landing every day and see garbage that has been left from these lazy buttheads. i get totally eurked. there was a television dropped off the other day by someone. and the only reason i did not pick it up is the cost in getting rid of it. the dnr does not have the extra funds to put dumpsters at the landings. and even if they did there would be more non fishing people useing them. than anything else. i also stop to pick up things that have been tossed out of vehicles onto the ice. and at the landings. i also participate in an ice cleanup day before ice out if there is one. but the thing is we should not have to do this. i was always taught. take only pictures and leave only foot prints. and i practice what i preach. you cant imagine how my blood boils when i see litter on the ice, landings. or along side the road. infact the other day i caught some nomind tossing garbage in my dumpster at work. after giving him a royal hindside chewing out, i did inform him that if i caught him doing this again i would detain him and call the police. it is a pretty sick thing that you can not provide your own means to dispose of the waste you incurr. but like i said the poor buttheads that are doing this are not reading this. because i know that the members of this site would never stoop to something as low as littering or tresspassing on a private dumpster. but lurkers beware. if i catch you, i have a camera and a cell phone. you WILL get busted. and i will take time off of work to see you prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. ... paul

Well put... As a Biology teacher, I couldn't agree more. Our environment is too often taken advantage of. It is sad that people that partake in the sport of fishing are so ignorant that they do not see the big picture.

There is no excuse-the people who do this just don't care and it is really sad.

I agree that the people that post here, for the most part, are not the lake trashers. Last winter, at the Cats On Ice event, I was helping to tear down and so was one of the last ones to leave. There was over a hundred people there and aside from ice holes and tire tracks, you couldn't tell that people had been there. At one point, a guy dropped a cigarette butt(filthy habit) and I almost bumped heads as two of us right behind him both bent down at the same time to pick it up. I have a special compartment under the seat of my flipover for trash. Most trips, its just not big enough. frown.gif

    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
    • There are other houses on the pond, nobody has a dock though.  I don't think my neighbors would care, I kinda ran it by the guy on one side.  Because the county plat map has the pond divvied up between 8 different properties on the street, I would think that technically taking a kayak around the pond would be trespassing.  Nobody has complained though and during the winter there were skaters and people running their dogs all over it and nobody asked me for permission.  Not that I care at all.   I don't need a Hatfield / McCoy problem with the neighbors, but at the same time it's my property.  If I had a McMansion on Crystal Lake in Bville nobody could or would complain about me putting a dock out.  
    • For those that knew him.     Great Outdoors (Jim Maki) has passed away. From the various stories heard it seems he died suddenly on his boat dock. It sounds that he was just getting ready to go fishing.               Below is the info found in the Ely Echo.  Jim will be dearly missed among his friends. He had just recently closed the sale of his bait shop and was relieved to find he now some more time to do more fishing and other things.                                    THE ELY ECHO  Submitted by admin1 on Sun, 07/07/2019 - 18:47  James Robert Maki of Ely, 70, died on July 6, at his home on Burntside Lake. He was where he loved to be, doing what he loved, fishing.  Born on August 24, 1948 in Ely Minnesota, Jim was the son of Luella (Erickson) Maki and Robert William (Ropey) Maki. After graduating from Ely High School, Jim joined the Army serving from September 1967 until December 1970. He was in the 173rd Airborne Division,the 41st Battalion, working as an MP. He sustained injuries in Vietnam.  Returning to Ely after his military commitment, he married Rebecca (Becky) Richards on February 5, 1972. He and Becky raised their two children, Krista and Steven, at their home on Burntside Lake. Jim worked at US Steel’s Minntac Plant in Mountain Iron from1971 to 1975 and as a millwright for Inland Steel at the Minorca Plant in Virginia from 1976 until 2003, when he retired. Jim was a member of Steel Workers Local #1938 and Local #6115. Jim also owned and operated the Great Outdoors Bait and Tackle Shop onSheridan Street from 1985 until 2019.  An avid outdoorsman, Jim enjoyed hunting and fishing. In his younger years, he trapped his own bait, and went ricing with his wife and in-laws. He loved the Ely area and was the unofficial ‘mayor’ of Burntside Lake, being the voice of authority regarding fishing and ice conditions.  Jim, who was affectionately known as ‘Jaws’, had the gift of gab and was always up for conversation. He had a story about anybody you could name, fishing advice to share, and was willing to express his political opinion whether you asked or not. He could becleverly funny, entertaining his audiences with humorous tales from his extensive knowledge of Ely’s colorful past.  Above all, Jim was known for his heartfelt concern and interest in people. He devoted many hours coaching youth hockey and was always available to provide support for his friends, family, and even people he just met.  Jim was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Becky. He is survived by his daughter Krista (Shawn) Zurn and son Steven (Katie) Maki and grandchildren Cas Grant, Ayden Maki and Kylee Maki. He is also survived by his loving companion of 20 years, CeliaDomich.  A gathering to remember Jim will be held on July 27 at the Longbranch in Winton from noon to 3 p.m.  
    • Is this any other folks with houses on the pond or do you have the whole thing?  Not sure if they would complain or not if there are?  
    • The crib idea is a bit more than I am looking for.  I just want a 4' x 8' dock section on a little pond.  Trying to keep this around $500.   It is a curious point though.  The pond doesn't even show up as water on some maps even though it's been there forever.  Aerial photographs from the 40s show it in the middle of a cornfield.  The county plat map shows it as water and it shows I own a slice of it across to the other side, as opposed to the normal deal where your property line ends at the water.    Of course for property tax purposes, it's considered lakeshore.    
    • We recently embarked on a paddling, fishing and camping adventure on the Saint Croix River.. We put the Kayaks in at Interstate Park (MN) and our take out point was Marine on St. Croix (16.1 miles downstream). In between those launches we explored the river, back waters, caught multiple different species of fish, camped one night at a primitive site, got rained on and had a blast! I can't wait to get back out on that stretch of river. This video captures a good portion of our adventure.    
    • It didn’t sound like his pond was much of a “waterway” but I get your point.  There are actual dock guidelines/rules published by the DNR that should be referenced.  I’m pretty confident he’d be OK.
    • Nice win last night! That triple play really picked them up. Thought Rogers was going to let another 1 slip away & then he found his curve. Hope they can keep knocking them out of the park.
    • I wonder if down here in the cities, if you would have to get a permit to put in a crib dock since it more of a permanent structure in a water way?
