Missouri Department of Conservation

The MDC Wants Your Old Christmas Trees........

 

Christmas is a week away, and the Missouri Department of Conservation is wondering what you plan on doing with your live Christmas tree when you are done with it.

 

The MDC would like to use your used Christmas tree to help anglers to catch fish.  They will use the trees to create artificial fish habitats in St. Louis County's Spanish Lake Park, Lake 34 on the August A. Busch Conservation Area in St. Charles, and Lake Lincoln in Cuivre River State Park.

 

Kevin Meneau, a MDC Fisheries Management Biologist, says that the trees offer woody cover that is perfect habitat for invertebrates, who are an ideal food source for smaller fish, who in turn, lure in bigger fish........

Fishing News

Senate Passed Modern Fish Act........

 

The U.S. Senate recently passed S.1520, the Modernizing Recreational Fisheries Management Act of 2019.  Known as the Modern Fish Act, the legislation makes crucial updates to the oversight of federal fisheries.  The legislation is now headed to the House.

 

According to Jeff Angers, president of the Center for Sportfishing Policy, the Senate passing the legislation means that anglers are closer to being properly recognized under federal law.

 

Thom Dammrich, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association said that they are pleased with the passage of commonsense legislation that modernizes the federal fisheries management system and protects recreational fishing for generations to come........

Water Pollution

Floating Device Not Corralling Plastic Waste In The Pacific Ocean........

 

The floating device sent out into the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and California to round up a swirling island of trash has not swept up any plastic waste. 

 

On Monday, 24 year old Boyan Slat, the young inventor behind the project, stated that a fix was in the works.  Slat says that the solar powered barrier is not allowing it to hold onto the plastic it captures.

 

Slat says that the system sometimes moves a little slower than the plastic, causing it to lose the plastic it has captured.  On Tuesday, engineers will reach the U-shaped boom and work on modifying it to catch more wind and waves to help it move faster........

News Release From BoatUS




SPRINGFIELD, Va., Dec. 17, 2018 -- A fascination with celebrity boaters and dramatic boat collisions combined with practical boating tips and the desire to learn from others’ mistakes were just some of the most-read topics to make BoatUS Magazine’s Top 10 Stories of 2018. The magazine is the nation’s most widely read recreational boating publication, delivered to more than half a million members of Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS).

To view any of these BoatUS Magazine Top 10 stories of 2018, go to www.BoatUS.com/2018-Top-10.


1.“Close Call: Boats Collide”: The skipper of a 35-foot sailboat is lucky to be alive after a 37-foot charter fishing boat struck his boat at speed.
2.“Extended Tax Provisions for Boaters”: Congress kept the tax deductions in 2018 for recreational vessels with a sleeping berth, cooking and toilet facilities.
3.“Mistakes Boat Owners Make That Can Cost Them”: We've seen it all, and we've seen the same mistakes again and again. Don't let these happen to you.
4.“Top 5 Reasons Boats Get Towed”: BoatUS claims data can tell us why, but we don't like to point out problems without solutions. A towing expert shares what you can do to avoid these situations altogether.
5.“Jimmy Buffett: a Pirate Looks at 71”: 'Gulf-and-western' musician, singer, songwriter, and author, Jimmy Buffet, has a new sailboat. Here's a look inside the Ted Fontaine-designed Drifter.
6.“3 New Boats Under $30K”: Can you buy a new boat for less than most new cars? You bet you can!
7.“Improving Fishing Regulations for Recreational Anglers”: Legislation aimed at improving fishing regulations is working its way through the U.S. Congress, and BoatUS is on watch for you.
8.“How to Splice Double-Braid Line”: Mooring warps, halyards, sheets, and plenty of other lines aboard all use double-braid. Avoid weak knots by learning how to add an eye splice yourself.
9.“Boat Cleaning Tips”: Our BoatUS editors share their most difficult boat-cleaning dilemmas. Here are some slick solutions.
10.“Biobutanol: The Ethanol Alternative”: Biobutanol is an ideal substitute for the engine-damaging ethanol that boaters have been forced to use. What is it, and when will we see it in marinas?
