Federal government rallied volunteers. Our mission if we were willing to do so, was to go out and bomb the floor of Mark Twain Lake with strategically placed trees. We did many missions today and eliminated a hill of trees established for this purpose . It was awesome to see how many folks turned up with it cold and snowing to help achieve a better fishery for MTL. Four boats total in our group, myself and another volunteer, Corp of Engineers and MDC each had a boat, in the MDC boat was Ross Dames, Fisheries Management Biologist for the Northeast region. We had a crew of folks and 4 hers working to get it done. Yes it will take several hours to clean out the boat, but for me having the opportunity to put in some dues for a better fishery is well worth it. I want to encourage other BOC members to continue and look for ways to be stewards of the resources we so dearly enjoy, after all we're one's out there enjoying it's fruits.
