It's all about "where", I think, rwidman. Chumming doesn't typically take place in a quiet, crowded, anchorage. But if I toss the remains of my pan fried bass into the waters of Nicolet Bay - 30ft away from my neighbor - that might result in some contretemps.
Otherwise - not an issue, right? In the restricted waters of the Great Lakes
, garbage and sewage disposed of over the side is forbidden - anywhere. In harbor, we seal our heads, right? But in the middle of the ocean - I'm crapping with the fishes.
