Very Cool Sight

Recommended Posts

I was fishing on Constance near Buffalo last night when a bald eagle stole a guy's sunnie. It came in real slow and just dropped down right behind him. I'm not sure if the guy even knew it happened.

There's a big nest on Big Marine. The eagles are constantly circling around looking for fish on the ice. I agree it's a very cool thing to see.

Last winter, guy next to us pulls up a hammerhandle. Takes it and starts walking out to the middle of the lake about 200 yards away. When he gets back, he looks at us and says "watch this". About that second, an eagle comes out of the trees and starts circling. Less then 3 minutes later, swoops in and grabs that pike.

One of the coolest things I have seen.

We've had them land about 20 yards away and walk to the shack to steal the perch we flipped out the door. Thought the game warden snuck up on us til we flipped the shack open and saw the eagle standing there with his talons as full as he could get them! I bet he stole 3 of our catch. We started paying closer attention after that. Another landed close, but didn't come to the shack. We threw a small one his way.

Reminds me of the way I "relocate" the suburban rabbits I catch in my live trap.

Take them down to the MS. river by my house, near an Eagles nest.

This time of year, drop the rabbits on the ice... (after rattling the cage a bit) rabbits take off across the ice to get away from me, right into the waiting talons of the eagles.

I swear the eagles know my truck now.

Summertime the same way... only the rabbits go for a swim... then just like a fish.

I lost count... I think its up to 33 rabbits in the last 2 years.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
