Save our Tomales Bay – Part 30 roadside fishermen trashing the shoreline

If you hadn’t noticed already, I take umbrage when people mindlessly (or mindfully) leave trash in or around Tomales Bay.

Out of town people (no locals would do this, would they?) like to set up camp alongside route 1 just South of Tony’s Seafood and fish. No problem with that.

But I have a big problem when they leave their beer cans, surgical gloves, bait, bait boxes etc on the rocks, in the water along the road.

If you know who is doing this, please ask them to stop leaving their trash along the bay.

If it keeps happening, these fisher-folk will need to find another place to try their luck.

I’ve twice spoken with a group that comes down from Sebastopol, explaining the situation as I see it. They said they would spread the word, as well as pick up trash they find.

The same goes for the fishing shack further south. If I keep finding that place covered with trash left by fishermen (likely local people), I’ll lobby hard for it to be removed.

If you folks love coming out to enjoy Tomales Bay, then damnit, stop trashing the place! Or you may find the welcome wagons circling and not so welcoming.

The images below show what I recovered from the same two locations just south of Tony’s the past two weekends.
