Default Hey...I have a Great Idea.

Don't throw your discarded or un-needed fishing line in the water. Instead put it in your cooler, an empty water bottle, drink can or anything else that will keep it in your boat until it can be disposed of properly that way it won't end up around someone else propshaft.

I just cleaned up the boat from last nights bloodbath and as I sprayed down the motor I found a piece of Braid hanging from the prop.. I took the prop off and un-wound 15 feet or so of small braid.

Thanks in Advance.

I check my prop after every trip. If I go out through the pass, then I am almost guaranteed to have some mono on there.

I see it happen from ignorance rather than intentional. I see people troll too fast and break off, get a big fish and break off etc. I truely think when you find long pieces of line, it got there accidentally/ignorantly....

Good point Garbo.

Would like to add please give clearance and use common sense when boating around people who are trolling. Had a guy zoom behind my lines about 40ft a couple of weekends ago right after I passed him trolling. I waved and he acknowledged, started his motor, and zoomed off right behind me spooling one of my rods with 300yrds of 50lb braid. I'm sure he had fun cleaning out that mess.

Not just line either, any trash you take with you needs to come back with you. Cans, bottles, bags, wrappers, etc.

Not only does it end up on prop shafts. At work last week I saw a bird that had made a nest with some mono. While landing to feed it's young, it got a loop on it's neck. It then took off and hung it's self. It flew frantically in circles until it was too exhausted to fly and dropped to choke on the line... It was too far off the ground for us to help. One of the saddest things that I have ever seen.

Curtis, Please stop now. Your out of control. Your rage might rub off on others. Lord help us all! Don't encourage anyone else in your dangerous ways. OMG the humanity of it all!

Say brother it's okay to say Douchebag, really it is
You're of course added to my list
