There has been a lot of talk (and even more opinions) about the water qualities in Florida recently.
In particular, the amount of “polluted freshwater” that is being dumped into two of Florida’s critical estuaries.
There has also been a TON of misinformation regarding the real issues along with legitimate solutions if you read many of the comments in the fishing forums and online fishing groups.
What I really like about this latest video from the Captains For Clean Water is that instead of doing a video entirely about blaming the guilty parties (which doesn’t solve any problems), they came up with a legit solution that we can (and should) get behind.
They also did a great job of spelling out exactly what the real issue is in an easy to understand way.
So what’s the solution?
To create a manmade water filtration system that moves the water from south Lake Okeechobee down to the top of the Everglades (instead of pushing it out of the St. Lucia Canal and Caloosahatchee River into our beloved estuaries).
According to the video, the state has the funds to make it happen.
Now they just need our undying support.
If you want to make sure your kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids have the same fishing experiences that we did here in Florida, I urge you to join the Captains For Clean Water campaign and become a member or donate anything you can.
This is the time.
Don’t wait until it’s too late.
