Lake Jackson Sinkhole

Postby quackhunter99 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 8:20 pm

The water is so ridiculously low right now at jackson ... we better get some massive storms soon to replenish the aquifers and get some water in these tally lakes. :crying: There is only a handful of boat ramps left in tally where I can put out my boat.

Unless we get 30" or more rain, those will be non existent, just like Jackson. The bay and Seminole are sure to be busy.

It's like the x games on iamonia, just a bunch of dirtbikes and 4 wheelers on lake bottom. And beer cans...

One would think that this sort of activity would be detrimental to some of the habitat, so why doesn't the fwc or county frown on that crap. Millers landing is another fine example of knuckle heads screwing it up for everyone. What can be done? :bow:

You stand up as a group to try and fix the problem. UWF is great, but local issues need a local unit. Time to get some guys together to start looking out for our local habitat.

I went to the Miller's Landing boat ramp today with my (non-duck) dogs. Since I was last there about two weeks ago, the water has actually risen, thanks to tropical storm Debby. The lake will need a few more tropical storms before it's back to normal levels though.

Pray for rain.
