Over the past few years icefishing has become a bigtime
sport. Along with that, comes responsibility.

The great sport so many of Us enjoy, has gotten, a bad rap.
Several places that use to be accessable, no longer exist.
I know, its probably only a few people, but we need to
clean things up a bit.

When your fishing in canels, with houses around you,
try to respect the Owners. Nothing worse than a home
owner, looking out and seeing someone Urinating in the
middle of the canal. Pick up after yourselves, and if you
see something laying on the ice, pick it up. Countless times
last year, there were empty propane cans, bait containers,
beer, and pop cans laying around.

A local store owner, has told me, he will no longer
allow fisherman to park in his lot. To many guys emtying
cigerette ash trays, leaving trash in his alot.
He even went as far as telling, guys were taken
dumps behind his buiding.

We complain, about all these no parking signs,
well the never were there before, until we fisherman
spoiled it for others.

Yep, it only takes a few to ruin it for us all. Be carful out there as well. While playing tennis this morning, someone asked me what I was doing this weekend and I replied, " Probably going muzzleloadin but if I get my final deer I'll be ice fishing" He gave me a look like I was a nut. I asked "what?" He said are you one of those crazy nuts that goes out there this time of year? I told him that the reports of good ice are in on the canals. It's been a cold winter and that the ice is early. He stated, "yeah but there are always wakos out there who will venture to far out onto the lake". "I said yep you're right. But the majority don't and it's too bad that the a few people who use bad judgement giver perceptions to the unknowing that we are all morons.

Be safe, have fun, if I see you on the ice I'll share one! ;)
