FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 05/8/2018

Peak spring fishing is here! Lots of bugs are hatching in the Smokies, smallmouth bass are heating up, and the Caney is starting to offer some fishable windows especially on weekends. This is looking like a good summer for fishing here in middle and east Tennessee. Spring was unseasonably cool which should make for some excellent summer fishing on the tailwaters in particular.

When Eagles Steal Fish...

  1. The odds of you catching that on video must be huge. I'd play Power Ball right away.

    1. I've heard of this happening and think it would be amazing to catch like this but as you say, the odds have to be astronomical...

  2. The "Spirit In The Sky" never ceases to amaze me.

    1. Yep, birds are interesting in general but eagles are something special!

  3. I have been having more and more eagle fly bys over hooked fish lately. I usually give the fish slack and let them dive. Once I had a rainbow jump at the wrong time and the result was like your experience. Its crazy for a few moments.

    1. Fred, I should have been clear but this was not my own video. Pretty amazing that you have experienced this as well though. I have fished "with" eagles before though and they always show me up. One day, in the midst of a good skunking, I had an eagle carry off a 24"+ trout. Pretty impressive to watch...
