Very true     This morning while checking out the north shore of Oneida lake, We ran into a guy coming off the ice at Constantia.   Within 2 minutes, I felt like we felt like we knew him all of out life.   He gave us great information on where to go and even offered us some GPS waypoints where he fished this morning.   Before the conversation ended, he packed up his 3 walleyes and 15 of the 30 perch he had and gave them to my wife and I.  And that was right after he handed me a bunch of cool jigs and dropper rigs that he uses.
   He refused any thanks or payment for the tackle.  He just said, enjoy our lake and take care of it as if it was your own.     I'm still a bit stunned !    I handed him a card with my number on it and offered to take him out to lunch or dinner whenever he wanted.      He shot back with Coffee is my friend !    See you on the ice  and off he went ! 
  We're loving this area more each minute !   
always good to hear a positive experience. i've had mutiple acts like this over the years and try to extend the same help and knowledge anytime i can. i wouldn't of ever caught my biggest brooktrout ever if i hadn't met a great guy and his son hiking out when i was hiking in to one of my now favorite back country ponds. chatted a bit about the area and explained i was trying to learn about pond brookie fishing and the gentleman seemed to revel in the fact that he was going to help me and make sure not only was my trip successful, but that i understood what and why he does the things he was doing. he gave me a crash course on pond brookies and the habits, gave me a 1/2 can of corn and a couple lake clear wobblers (had know idea what they were at the time!), and even told me where his 2 boats were stashed on the next 2 ponds. well, needless to say, with his help i not only caught dozens of beautiful brookies and a couple browns, but i also caught what is still today my pb brookie which def would of gave the record a run for its $ if i kept it (this was before the record was wiped). and even though i didnt catch the 'bigbrookie' on a lake clear or the corn, i would of never been fishing the area i was in that morning i caught the fish if he hadn't explained to me the habits of the bigger fish.
having been the beginner before, i understand that alittle help and a few tips can make a difference between and good and bad day/trip, and i'm greatful for the guys hat helped me along the way.

Munson, your encounter with a good fishing Samaritan warms my heart. Maybe not all your encounters will be that kindly. It is, however, truly indicative of the type of fisherman we should all try to emulate. I too have been blessed with many such acts of kindness and the act of paying forward has been part of my ice fishing career. Kudo's to the fisherman who gave you such gifts , of time and knowledge. I pray his positive impact on you will come full circle and that way, you will know your future kindnesses will return to him and us all in full measure.
The impact that we felt yesterday won't be forgotten !    The wife and I had an absolutely great time on Oneida this morning because of the straightforward lake information and tips on how to use the lures and jigs.    We cut 6 holes in a spot where we were told to go with the help of the GPS.  We never moved from the first 4 holes we cut.   The fish were there, the weather was good, we had a blast and will definitely try to be more helpful to fellow fishermen or women in the future.

Kurt , Are you PA guys still coming up? It is getting harder to find a safe piece of ice to fish on. Last week end was a bust at 3 mile as the open water had reclaimed a full half of the bay and lightly froze back over with a thin ice layer denying us access to our previous spot, unless we brought our boat HA HA. I know Big Buck is coming up with Vince and I am not quite sure where to direct them as I am now a week end warrior like everyone else. I will keep an eye out on the weather and would like some good updated info to put them in a good spot. Eddy has  a secret Waldo sanctuary and I can not tell under fear of death, in fact he is going to blind fold me when we go.  I told him to have no fear as I already drive by the braille system . PA guys, check the ice conditions for a good spot this week end. I am sure I will get some feed back on this.

I want to catch up on some of my overdue shout outs, I have gotten and am still getting a lot of phone calls asking me if the 2 man tournamen is still on. I have asked Big Bucks to remove it from the Tournaments page. He did make an announcement in a previous post on this same thread, But just to repeat  The 2 Man Tournament At Sandy Pond Has Been Canceled till FEB 2013. That being said, I have enjoyed the conversations I have had on the phone with ice fishermen from all over the state and even outside the state. Make no bones about it, this tournament would have brought in a lot of contestants had the weather cooperated. Perch Pounder had virtually moved to the pond to familiarize himself . Had 2 guys from Connecticut who were going to stay the week before. My friend Seacat has been beset with injuries and could not make the trip this year, so here's hoping you heal good enough my friend to take second place next year. HA HA. Paperchound was ready to lead the Pennsylvania teams into the fray. Oddly , the Pa guys have some lakes up in the mountains of PA they have been traveling to get their ice fishing fix. Pond Skipper will take care of finding some ice for Paperchound this week end as they are buds as well. Got to get ready to go to work now. Very excited cause Drowndin Dots has assured me we are going to get some wallys this week end. He has been getting some lessons from Snagger, well I don't know if you could call waiting at the end of his driveway in the morning and following him to the lake and parking descreetly down the street and following his travels with binoculars "getting lessons"

Yankees hats scare away fish unless it's really off colored water, the fish are smarter than some I know.  So unless it's been raining a lot...........
