Planning a fishing trip at your favorite beach, jetty, or pier on Saturday, September 25?
While you’re waiting for those hungry perch, stripers, and rockfish to bite, take a few minutes to bag up some trash and participate in California’s Annual Coastal Clean-Up Day. While the official event takes place from 9:00 A.M. to noon, please take this opportunity to conserve and protect the near-shore environment by reusing a grocery or shopping bag by filling it with old fishing line, plastic, trash, and any other waste you find at the beach.
United Pier and Shore Anglers would also like to invite you to send a picture of you and your fishing buddies participating in the Coastal Clean-Up Day. Take a digital shot of your group and your “clean up loot” and send it to email@example.com. If you include your names and the location (general location is OK to protect your secret “fishin’ hole”) where you picked-up trash, we will include your contribution in an upcoming post and “UPSAC Coastal Clean-Up Coverage Map” at UPSAC.ORG.
No prizes or giveaways for this one; just our heartfelt thanks for doing your part to keep our beaches clean.
