I heard about a few politicians complaining about the 9th. str. causeway being so trashed even tho there is some trash cans out there. They are recommending no parking on the causeway if it continues. They said that hardly anyone is useing the trash cans.
I clean up some everytime I go there but it is out of control. He was right hardly anyone is useing the trash cans. There is fishing line everywheres and bait bags and containers everywhere. Come on guys and gals this could cost us a great fishing area. I'm sure it isn't hard to pick up after yourselfs.

Couldn't agree more! It's a mess. The guys I see
leaving trash typically don't appear to know what
they are doing. You know, heaving a glob of bait
in the middle of the day. Hopefully they are
members on this board, but doubtful. It's a shame,
but all it takes is a few people to ruin it for
everyone. They probably don't catch much and
wouldn't care if they lost access. Thanks Striperaholic
for picking up after them, even though you shouldn't
have to.

If we do let's get some press coverage. The publicity would be to our advantage. I'd volunteer but my plate is pretty full right now. I could probally make the work detail though. Maybe some Bait & Tackle shop's can get involved!

I'm in also and Bgsdad is write, we need someone to cordinate with the local municipality to get media coverage. We should do a clean up anyway but getting more bang for our buck by getting into the papers or on TV is a great way to put some positive messages out there that fishermen do good things too.

The Rush Chattin is in pretty bad shape also with trash all over the place.

I think alot of area's at this point into the
season is due for some major clean-ups now that
the Summer Tourist season is over...
I like the idea of getting some coverage about
it,to put a positive spin about fishermen and
fishing acess area's..Especially where OC is
Concern...
I am willing to make some contacts and set things
up if we get enough members here interested in
helping out...

Nightstrikes...maybe we should start a new
thread with a different title. We can get a
list going of interested members. It would only
take a dozen or so. I'm sure there are at least
that many willing to help.

I can make arrangements for the trash to be picked up by OC as long as it is bagged and any batteries etc. are seperate. I may actually be able to get the bags from the local municipality (OC).
