    I love the way you beat up on citrus as you wrote about our lake. People do some crazy tignhs in the name of progress and all too often they turn what they touch into a vile, corrupt mess. I fished Lake Apopka as a kid. That was over fifty years ago and let me tell you we caught lunker bass. You want to be careful picking on the citrus industry though. There were a lot of those old boys that would dress up in bed sheets of a friday night and pledge allegiance to their favorite cause which sometimes led to some nasty consequences for anybody they dissagreed with.Fishing Schoolteacher
