    I was watching wral this evening and they had a story about a Jordan Lake bald eagle that flew down to pick up what he thought was gonna be and easy meal, turned out it was a catfish with it's dorsal fin sticking straight up. The eagles talons were injured and he had to be taken to a vet.

    Well today he was released back into the wild....wander if he will be second guessing himself next time he goes to catch a fish.

    I fish at Jordan a lot and love wathing the eagles swoop in and catch fish and the cranes sneaking along the bank and catching them also. That eagle will be back out there "fishing" soon if he hasn't already started.

    I was halfway watching some duckhunting show the other day. They shot their limit, and suddenly an eagle came down and snatched one of the dead ducks out of the water.
