If you’d like to dispose of your used monofilament and gear at a recycling center, the following locations will properly recycle: The Bait Box, 1041 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel and West Marine locations throughout Lee County.

Should an animal become entangled in fishing line, anglers are asked not to cut the line. First, make sure the animal is restrained; use a large towel or shirt to cover the animal’s head and/or body for protection. Wrap the towel/shirt around the animal quickly and place it in a box or available container. Then, call the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) at 239-472-3644 for further instructions.
