Met a nice 10 to 13 year old well mannered young man yesterday at the ramp and wanted to say thanks to him and his parents for his concern and manners.

I was in the process of flipping the selector switch on my boat winch when a wave hit the boat yesterday at the ramp. Because of the rocking action the wave caused my thumb slipped into the gears and took out a pretty good chunk of meat from my thumb. This young man was carrying tournament fish back to the water when it happened and said "Sir are you okay, can I help". The "Sir" part at that moment overcame the pain I was in as it has been a long time since I have heard such manners.

If anyone here was in that tournament and know this young man and his Dad please give them a big thank you from me for something you don't see very much anymore.

Sorry about the thumb! How was the fishing? What weights won the Tourny?

Thanks dmr. Thumb is in a protective splint and with meds not bothering me much. Fishing was more of an outing with wife and daughter so I can't give a good report. Don't know the weights as I didn't get a chance to ask but there were about 10-15 boats fishing and a lot of fish were being released. Felt good to see the parking lot about 1/3 full since the last time I was there when I counted 4 vehicles. Either the fish are biting or more are just seeing the "new" lake with the latest rise in water. First time I have been there in a long time that I did not see a single gator. As soon as the thumb get better I plan on going in the middle of the week to try it alone.
