Default So this is it..

Were we are now at this day and age.. Quintana jetties.. No respect for anything.. I guess this will be the norm from now on and will probably just get worse.. It's sickening.. And we wonder why all of the public bank fishing spots are now being gated and fenced off.. POSTED!!

Not happy to say so but it'll probably get worse before it gets better. And the only way it'll get better is as said above, fenced and posted. And There are or were,Haven't been there in a while, trash barrels at the area. Just lazy people.

It's everywhere ! I have to pick up trash off the road in front of my house all the time. Hell, they will throw it in the driveway. Mostly fast food sacks, plastic bottles, and beer cans. I'd like to slap a dog **** out of them !

As has already been mentioned, it will lead to less access for us and it s@cks that a few lazy idiots wild screw it up for the rest of us.

So **** frustrating. It takes 30 seconds to pick up that before you go. I put these folks right up there with those that leave their shopping carts 50ft away from the return area. Lazy.

I wish our county would charge $500 for a permit to access our beaches and jetties.. I'd pay it no questions asked.. This would cut down the disrespectful riff raff which would help this situation tremendously.. I'd pay it.. It very sad for me to see this crap.. Being born and raised here it hurts my heart to see what is happening to our resources..
Total abuse.. Something has to give!!!!

This burns me up. Last year we were up in the high country elk hunting and ran across a camp site. They had left paper wrappers and all kind of trash laying around - and this was country you had to home to get into. I was HOT!! If Iíd found them, they would have at least known my opinion. I gathered everything up and packed it out with me. I just couldnít leave all that garbage in such an otherwise pristine area.

That kind of stuff also makes it hard for guys to get access to private land as well. Many of the farmers Iíve talked with up here have been burned in the past by guys they let have access to their farms.

If you weren’t raised to have respect and pick up after yourself when you were a kid, what are the chances you will have an “aha!” moment as an adult? Probably slim to none. I’ll bet the people who do that trash their own yards too. Trashy people do trashy things.

It amazes me how sloppy and clueless rednecks are. A lot of it is pure laziness and as mentioned above, horrendous “parenting”.

If your momma had been throwing beer cans, cigarettes, and dirty diapers out the window your whole life, you wouldn’t think much of it.

It has & will continue to affect access. I don’t mind a bit if someone sets up camp on me, but I do mind & would say something if they leave trash.

Right ! The biggest offenders are the newly minted border crossers. I've had some work for me and when they get through with it, they throw it down. Look at you like you're nuts when you tell them to pick it up.

Another of my pet peeves is people who will drive down a dirt road and dump their household garbage. I'm guessing if they were caught and fined heavily enough it might make a difference, but that ain't what sells newspapers or gets the DA elected.

No sir it has not always been like that.. I was born here and still live here..
I'm old enough to remember when you could hit the surf during the week and never see a person from the jetties to the mouth.. I'm only 52..
It stays packed 7 days a week now days.. Those government checks must be really good..

There is no excuse for littering like that... Two quick experiences with how trashy people are.

1. I grew up going to Port A multiple times a summer and have continued doing it as an adult. About five years ago we basically quit going to Port A several times a summer due to how trashy/nasty the beach is and how expensive it had gotten. We tried the Ft. Walton Beach/Destin area and fell in love with Florida. It is amazing how clean and well cared for most of the beaches are in that area of Florida. Night and day difference with how people treat our Texas coast line. We were just down in Port A a couple weeks ago. Cigarette butts, bottles, cans, bottle caps, plastic bags, etc. all over the beach. People would be camped out under their pop up tents all day, pack up and leave litter all over the place. It made me sick.

2. I'm very disappointed in how the high school kids treat the high school where my daughter goes. The kids literally pull into the parking lot from lunch, and dump fast food bags, wrappers, cans, and various other types of trash onto the ground. I mean they pull up, and must literally just dump it on the ground. You can drive the parking lots after school is out and it is embarrassing that our campus looks like that. My daughter plays tennis for the high school and their courts are literally covered by the same wind blown trash. We go watch tennis tournaments where kids come from other schools within our district and its plain embarrassing. I keep telling my daughter, if I were the principal of the school, I'd give the student body one week to clean up their campus or I'd close campus for all students. No more open campus for lunches, etc.... I really need to call the school district to complain, its that bad. Its equally frustrating that the principals and admin. do nothing to demand that the students treat their campus with respect.

I thought the pictures was from calaveras lake in San Antonio till I read it. The sad part of all this is a lot of the boat ramps are this way. And take a trip down the Guadalupe river past seguin and see some of the junk laying along the river.

Cleaned up that little area. Done it before. Takes 10 to 15 mins of your time. You live their so I would have thought you would have had at least cleaned up where you live. Actually I was at padre island last weekend and I'm from S.A. and cleaned up a mess. Not as big as that mess but close. But that's me. Just funny to see people complain and do nothing. Have a good day sir.

Well good for you and I never asked for your approval about my complaining... If you feel obligated to clean up someone else's garbage then I'm sure it's even worse now.. Come get you some.. My point is that it should never happen.
Im not in the business of cleaning up other people's messes especially when the mess includes used condoms, syringes and dirty diapers.
That was just 2 snapshots of a much larger area that looks like that ALL OF THE TIME.. It would take a clean CREW all day, to clean that crap up and has.. This is the norm down here.. Clean it up and a week later it looks exactly the same..
