Michigan anglers and bait shop owners are fighting against a push to ban lead lures. They warn that banning lead in fishing tackle would harm Michigan's $7 billion fishing industry, that's already been hit by the recession. Reports say the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering banning the toxic metal because it can kill waterfowl if they eat it. A switch to a different type of lure would cause tackle prices to rise. The EPA is expected to make a decision by early November.
