Last time I was at Fork that same loon grabbed a small crappie right as I was getting it to the surface. Wound up braking the line.

I hate those things. One followed me around on Pines last year for about two hours and dove to get my jigs and minnows every time I reeled up my rods. Get outta here stupid birds!

It figured WRONG!
But it did chase the bass when I released it, was under quite a while, not sure if it scored a meal or not.
Figured if it had, it would have surfaced to swallow it hmmm

When we were at Pines a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't believe how social these birds were compared to the CC loons that I used to see. When we caught yellow bass, I felt like I was in the scene from Finding Nemo, when the gulls were like "mine, mine, mine."

The Pelicans used to be very brave at Pines, but I've never seen Loons get this close!!!
People have probably been feeding them dead minners?????

I was fishing with my son a couple of weeks ago. We were putting a spankin on the bar fish. we had a loon come up and we started tossing a few his way. ended up feeding him 6 fish. It was funny watching him try to get them down.
