2024 Battle of the Big Tarp

Trash Fishing Crew

For years we have cleaned up around an Island called Zug Island. Zug Island is an industrial island in the Detroit River. It was formed by Henry Ford and houses a giant steel mill. At one point Zug Island was considered the most polluted acreage in the world. It’s a shame because the clean water of the great lakes and the snow melt of most of the Midwest and central Canada flows right by.

In our attempts to clean the shores of Zug Island we have pulled thousands of pounds of trash and debris, but we were never able to get a specific big blue tarp. Well, this time we brought the right tools for the job. We were victorious. You can see a little video we made here: https://www.facebook.com/trashfishing/videos/489779063714493
