    Happy Birthday Larry and yes, it happens to me - just enough to keep me humble.

    Being on Medicare isn't so bad. That means you have more time to fish in most cases.:)

    It is when the Turkey and Black vultures start hanging around that you need to worry.:D Eagles not so much so.

    Thanks guys. I'm guessing the 6-8 salmon that surfaced could have been blackmouth, but one a little closer in that I caught a glimpse looked like a good sized cutthroat. The other splashes were pretty good ones. One cool thing I forgot to mention about the eagle. He was down the beach farther as I was leaving, walking towards him. I thought of pulling out my camera but didn't. He got up and flew my direction as I approached within 100 feet. He cruised, wings spread, 5-6 feet off the ground right at me and passed by within 20 feet of where I was standing. It was pretty cool and would have made a great photo.
