deantre its amazing experience ,happened to me while kayak fishing on menomonee river in UP ,there were two eagles circling over my head fighting each other and as soon as i moved away one of them scooped floating dead fish that was drifting on river surface 15 feet away from me
was cruising down a channel on the Chippewa Flowage about 5 mph and had an eagle swoop down just over my head from behind and grab a carp 10 yrds in front of my boat, boy talk about waking one up. They are such awesome birds. Have noticed that when ever I go to a spot and have an eagle in a tree overlooking the spot chirping I usually get some musky action.
Market value, probably 5 bucks, laugh! Hope to see some of you guys tomorrow at the Gateway.
Had a half day trip today with grandfather and 4 grand-kids. Grandfathers directive: we don't care what kind of fish we catch and we aren't going to keep any. That made my choice of spots pretty easy, in four hours of fishing I gave up after a dozen or so casts with my jig rod and spent the rest of the time baiting and unhooking fish, as did grandfather. We caught a mixed bag of fish: perch, gills, smallmouth and a lot of rock bass. One particular eagle had some good eatin and provided a spectacular show, he wasn't very boat wary and came in close for rock bass. We fished humps with wood and rock in 6-9'.
Despite flat water and bright skies we caught almost all the fish on bobbers, glad the orders weren't for keeper walleyes, thinking it might have been a struggle today.
First couple weeks in August seems to be the most popular time of year for families, fish with a lot of kids, great fun.

I will be there after fishing to sign autographs. Ha Ha that outta really bring em in! Hope to see you there.
Sorry for the sarcasm but the bugs (annoying blood sucking sort) are rampant. I just spent 4 days up there. Black flies, deer flies and skeeters were off the chart. I recommend anything with a healthy dose of deet.
i had 15 percent Repel and that barely worked. Lots of rain up there this year.
