Trash Fishing #5 – Diapers and Underpants at Belle Isle

We launched from a new spot this time. We put in at the St. Jean boat launch on the Northern end of Detroit, near Belle Isle.  From there we patrolled both sides of the Detroit River looking for trash.  On the land side we found a hose reel, trash, barrel and some other stuff.  On the Belle Isle side we found underwear, diapers, a car tire on the rim, and a boat oar.  We also found a bunch of trash to pick up.  It was a great day of Trash Fishing.  Mark’s twin sister Margot came out with us for the first time. Charlie and Jesse did too.


Trash Fishing Video – Episode 4 – The World’s First Trash Fishing Contest

When we started Trash Fishing we knew that if it was fun we would try to get other people to join us. Well, it is fun, and we want other folks to enjoy it too. Tom’s idea was to hold Trash Fishing Contests because contests are always fun. So, we held the first ever Trash Fishing Contest to see who could find the most, the most unusual, and the biggest piece of trash. We also awarded a “World Champion” award to the person who had collected the most trash all season.
