    I have seen alot of new members as of late and wihin there first few post, sometimes there 1st post they are asking directions to actual locations where they can catch big fish.

    I am all for helping new people out, with what bait they are hitting on, what tackle to use, and maybe a general location.

    But it seems more people want it the quick way and want actual honey holes given to them...I personally wont do it, I have worked to hard to find the spots I do fish, they aint secrete, and they can be found, but I wont give the exact location.

    I know where all your spots are... I put lowjacks in your fishin' boots. lol

    The answer is a resounding HELL NO! Done that once with one spot and learned a hard lesson. Not only did he fish it to death but annouced on open forum where it was so anyone else could too.:angry:

    Unfortunately, that seems to be the way a lot of people are these days. They just don't want to take thye time to pay the dues, just reap the rewards of someone else's labor.

    I told this guy misterwhisker a few of them....:eek:oooh::roll_eyes::smile2:
    Other than that, nope! Maybe a general area but no exact spots. Too many people like to keep & sell large fish to pay ponds.:angry::angry::angry:

    I told a friend about a hot crappie lake and the very next weekend an armada of his friends in boats decended on it. Mums the word now. The hotter it is the quieter I get. Same goes for cats in my book.

    As a avid catfisherman, I don't mind giving up places to fish, but never my actual honey hole. I'll point somebody in the right direction as hopefully somebody would do me. I'm in need of some places to fish in the rivers around here, but I wouldn't ask anybody to give me there honey hole. BUT if somebody did take me to there spot, I wouldn't tell anybody because I wouldn't want to ruin it for the both of us. Just my 2 pennies

    NO, If i get to know you or you go fishing with me maybe. i will tell you what i'm useing or how deep, ect, but where i don't think so. i have found these spots by being on the lake or river and put in my time. do the same
    (my 2 cents worth rwg
     
  14. Exactly, and respect.:roll_eyes:

    I have been caught by and seen some of my other BOC SE PA brothers along the bank here and there while fishing from my boat in my normal spots:embarassed::smile2:, and never moved into thier spot nor seen the opposite,:wink: that I know of.:eek:oooh: I'll keep an imaginary 40 yard buffer zone from other people's spots that I know who they are.:cool2:


    If they are a stranger, then hmmmmmm....good looking spot.......:wink::smile2::smile2:

    Well I just joined recently and started fishing again for the first time in 15 years. I wouldn't want someone to just give me their honey hole nor would I give one that I'd found to just any Tom, Dick, or Harry. So the answer would be a definite no. Honey holes come with experience, and that experience makes you a better fisherman IMO.:wink:
