i was driving in my car this afternoon. and i went by an old place my dad used to take me fishing years ago. and then as i was driving i crossed another place my dad used to take me fishing . key word here is USED to . now thers noting but dirt , where those ponds used to be. they've been filled in . i thought to my self. you got all these animal rights people protecting everything in the sea and ocean . and everything else. how can they be ok with just filling in a pond with life in it as well. i mean they just fill it in until its full. and thousands of fish just dead. i'm for the animal people . i am all about it . thats why i kinda got p$%T . cause both places was our 2 best places to fish. for anything . big bass you name it. but even if they wasn't .no body says nothing about that. i think by law they should be recuired to drain a pond before filling .at least make an attempt to be humain . thats what it all boils down to .they want us to be humain. but dont worry about the fish in small ponds . they really dont matter. i dont know just thought i would vent my opinon on thhis stuff. just gets under my skin.
