Monty. Went out to the lake, won't mention the name to embarrassed. Not much to report, it was real slow. After drilling some hole working my way around. I come to area that was just trashed. I was embarrassed to call myself a fishermen at what I saw. It really sadden me, wheres the respect,the responsibility I don't understand. fishermen and ladies we have a responsibility to our self, our kids, the lake, the future. I Know it not everyone. It the few that give the rest of us a bad name. This really chapps my hide. I mean, what do you think, am I making a big deal out of nothing. I take my trash with me. I don't know what else to say. Keep Keeping On. Monty P.S. Please don't leave your trash on the Ice.
i agree with ya this week up a the lake i found 5 1Lb propane cylnders and beer bottles its very sad that some people can have no respect. it give everybody a bad name i would hate to see the bottom of some lakes
unfortunately i saw the same thing on some south metro lakes that i fish. the beer bottles and garbage all across the lake. i hope people have fun and enjoy themselves, but take 5 seconds and throw your trash away right away and take it with.
i agree, i would hate to see some of the bottoms of lakes. just is sad to see.
I agree!! If you can take it out with you...should be able to take it back in when you are done fishing. It is our resposibility to keep our lakes and woods clean. And this issue reflects on all of us. I know in the past the DNR has mapped areas with fish houses and went after people for littering. Good idea but if we clean up after ourselves it won't put burden on the DNR and our lakes will stay somewhat clean. Be resposible!!!!
I'd like to see polluters' names and faces featured in the news media and on websites, like St Paul does with the names and pictures of prostitute-seeking johns. Stigmatizing shameful behavior can be a powerful deterrent.

People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
