Wifisher...I'm a diehard catman too...and guess what? I fish from the bank too. And I drink and smoke, but I don't leave trash on the bank either. If you pick up as much as you say, then you should be able to understand what I'm talking about. Every time I go to the lake it's the same thing...beer cans and bottles, empty liver containers everywhere.
Like it or not, I think we both know it didn't come from that guy blowin' by in his bass boat. Catfishermen get a bad rap because of this, so don't take what I said as a personal insult, I was pointing out that they need to address some issues too!
