    Just a question. when you are boat or bank fish and smoke... where do you dispose of the cigarette?

    Everytime.. I witness smokers throwing the butts into the lake,pond,river....
    thats so nasty!!

    I mean general trash is bad for our water ways...

    I agree with what you say and i will be the first to admit i have on occasion done this... But i have seen where people have dumped truck loads of garbage into the river... some places , some people can be ignorant, arrogant A**holes..... Just thinking of some of my favorite holes gets me aggravated.. And im sure alot of you out there know what im talking about... One of your most productive holes and its known to all but some treat it as a trash dump...... gerrrrrrr...

    i just drop mine in the bottom of the boat and clean them out with all the cans the next day and i agree i do not like seeing trash thrown in to the water i have reeled in anything from rubber gloves to trash bags but the strangest thing i ever caught was in a little pond in a trailor court it was a starter off an old ford sorry kind of went off topic with that one

    I hate it when I'm spending a day on the water, enjoying the views and nature and then I see trash and cig. butts floating by. NASTY

    I just put them out on the ground next to where I am fishing and pick the butts up when I leave.

    I don't smoke, but I do pick up the butts. There is nothing better than a cig. butt to hold up your egg sinker. Simply wrap the line a couple of times, pull it tight and tie a knot, holds the slip sinker up nicely.

    I put mine in my empty beer can. The beer can then goes in a trash bag in one of my hatches.
