A good morning

I had good quantity (34 fish: 29 LMB, 4 SMB, and one pickerel) and good quality (some 17, 18, and 19-inchers). It was calm, overcast, and foggy early. I set the hook faster on my soft plastics and that worked well. I saw a bald eagle trying to kill an osprey (again). The osprey escaped again. Hooray! It was a good morning. When I was a kid, I wanted to catch ONE 17-inch bass. My brothers had all caught one and I wanted to catch ONE too to say I could keep up with them. Now I catch so many 17-inchers.

Awesome trip, glad the Osprey got away.....must be a competitive reaction, as I'd imagine there is lots of food for them to eat otherwise.  

 

I'd venture a guess that you're the best angler in your family....now your brothers just want one day of catching fifty 17"+ Bass

Yeah, I am, but I work at it way harder than they do. 

 

The eagles try to kill ospreys because they're competing for the same fish. Imagine the competitors in a bass tourney trying to do the same, using their bass boats like fighter jets in a dogfight.

The title of this report is "A Good Morning," but if it were a YouTube video, the title would be "MILLIONS of MONSTER BASS!!!!"

That sounds like a great morning to me, congratulations. It must be fun out there almost alone in nature. I long for that kind of solitude, especially being in the city myself. I always liked it when I lived up north less people more trees and wildlife were a welcome companion.

Murph, it's rare when I share a lake or bog. And I have more than 30 area lakes and bogs that I have yet to fish. Heck, there's one that's four minutes away and is good for thirty-some bass per morning that I haven't fished yet this year. 

 

Maine is rich in water, but scant with people. Perhaps when you retire, you can move here. You can still buy a house up north for $50,000 and the north has ten times the water that mid-coast Maine has.

I really like the way that sounds, thank you for the insight. I can’t find a house around me now for less than $30,000 over that.

People think they are some kind of majestic bird of prey. They really aren’t, other than being a national symbol. They scavenge stinky dead fish and pick away at rotting roadkill deer carcasses a heck of a lot more than they hunt.

It’s a bird eat bird world out there 

 

the studies I’ve seen of their gut contents is over 60% waterfowl. Sitting ducks, you might say. I’ve seen them terrorizing coots often

Coots are probably a very easy target. They’re “sitting ducks”, as an analogy.

It only takes two crows to attempt a murder. 

But it takes a large number of Baboons to make a congress. Which explains a lot.....<G>

Terrorizing indeed. That's putting it nicely. Poor coots don't stand a chance.
