Trash ON JETTY! **edited** IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!
I went out to a popular jetty in SJ last night to cast out to have some fun with some blues. When I got out on the jetty there trash up and down it. Littered with water bottles, broken coolers with smelly bait in it, & a couple of dead rays. I picked up about a doven or so bottles when I was leaving and threw them in the trash can that was at the entrance of the jetty. I dont understand why its so hard for people to take out there own trash. All that s%#t goes right into the water. We wonder why some towns look down on fisherman its the few a-holes that dont know how to pick up there trash when there done.
way to go cleaning up after other scum bags....i do the same. i was fishing a popular flounder spot pre season for bass..and doing well, and it was CLEAN. opening day of flounder came around, and i hit the same spot at night like i had been doing for over a week...and it was disgusting what i saw...all in a matter of a day.
I see this all the time.Trash on the jetty and beach.It's not that hard to pick-up after yourself. Almost every time I go fishing I pick-up some trash.I especially try to pick-up stuff like old fishing line and plastic bags that can be harmful to marine wildlife...
yes the human race is depressing. They figure f**K it we dont live here so trash it
Been fishing out of a well known launch spot in the tuckerton area. The last couple times I've brought trash bags to clean up the area. Most of it was at the high tide line in the marsh grass but plenty of trash to be had at the immediate site and where cars park. I make it a point to clean up as much as I can now and dump the bag at wawa when I stop for coffee on the way home.
People are disgusting but the spot looks a thousand times better after a few minutes.
i fished sunset beach the other day and there a was a F*%$'n guy drinking heineken pony bottles and throwing in the water during the flood tide. He got the message after I bounced the second bottle that washed up in front of me off his cooler. Hopefully Im that A-hole local that ruined there "fishing trip" and they will not ever come back.
Reading these type of posts reminds me of that old 1970 tv commercial that ends with the Indian having a tear running down his cheek.. It just baffles me that this behavior is still so prevalent in society,, I blame poor parenting and lack of environmental moral code.
We all should always pick something up as we leave the waters we fish.

You may be surprised at how many are locals.
