Several years ago I had a little cove that produced for me every time that I went into it. It had given me a couple of high 20's during tournament situations and plenty of fives and tens over a period of two years. One night I got a call from one of my customers at a sports store that I worked at part time (retirement job) and he said he had some friends that wanted to go catfishing the next day and could I put them on some fish. I said sure, but do me one favor and that is don't take out any thing over ten pounds from that area. He said he had no problem with that and I felt good about telling him about my honey hole. The next night he calls me and tells me that him and his bud's are having a fish fry and he thanked me for the advice. Then he went on to tell me that they caught a low twenty and a high twenty cat out of my spot. I said, you turned them loose, didn't you and he said "hell no, we butcher them and are eating them right now". In the excitement of catching these trophies, he forgot all about what I had requested. Sad, but true. This was a lesson learned hard! Now when someone calls and wants to know where to catch catfish I will be honest and tell them the general area, but not the specific spot. If they search and find them, they are welcome to them. But, most people take the easy way out and will not work for their catch. I have no problem with people keeping their catch (big or small), but when one shares info. about good cats and you tell them about them on the condition that they not harvest them and they do, that's another story.
