Bold eagle stole my pike

7 posts in this topic

I had one pick up a duck I had downed in the decoys back in college. It was pretty awesome even though we went home with one fewer duck that day.

Trout fishing up in the Bdub one winter I saw that a eagle was circling within a quarter mile or so after I caught a white sucker.

 

Walked about 30 yds away and set it on the ice.

 

Buddy asked "What are you doing?"

 

"I'm just feeding a bird"

 

It was one of those dead still quiet days where you talk to yourself every once in a while to make sure you are not deaf.

 

I still remember the sound of the talons scratching the ice and the wingbeats as he cleared us by about 20ft after securing lunch.

 

Buddy says....."That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen and HEARD!"

Very cool.  There are bald eagles on one of our lakes here in the Black Hills that come flying around whenever they hear gas augers going.  I've seen them sit in a tree just waiting for a spare fish to be missed on the ice or they've landed on the ice within 50 feet of us and I've walked a trout out to them within 15 feet, put it on the ice, then they take off, fly very close around me, then grab it and go.  Very cool indeed.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
