Default interesting article

I'm sure we've all heard of this before, but it should be a reminder to all of us urban fishermen. With wastewater plants being the main source of flow to most river systems, and feeding some lakes like busse, fishermen should stay away from eating fish in these systems, as well as exposing your skin for prolonged periods of time, as in wading without waders on.

Hhmm, maybe this is one way of culling the bucket people. It may take a generation or two, but you cant reproduce when you dont have any hoohaws.

Default Good info!

Thanks for posting that, just had this conversation with my fishing partner this am, about how we wouldn't eat a think caught in the Chicago area. (please don't turn this into another one of those "eating fish good vs. eating fish bad" threads, there are enough of those on this site, and the s*#t gets old)
Very interesting article, though, especially like how they theorize it is tied partially into "excreted birth control hormones", everyone likes to blame the industries, or street runoff everytime bad things happen to water.
I get a chuckle out of how the very thing that allows married dudes the spare time to get on the water might be thing turning the fish into she-males...
