Good on you for removing the lure and releasing that bird. Not without considerable risk to yourself

Nice release. I have hooked pelicans while trolling, hate it. I always feel bad. But you have to do the right thing and try and get all the hooks out. Good job, those are awesome birds.

Helped out a fellow stranded fisherman. Good on you. A beautiful animal.

I tried to watch on my iPad, but the screen went blank. I could hear music bit no video. That occasionally happens with some videos on PFF. Anyone know how to resolve it.

Man, this is intense and you got it on video as well. Way to stay calm and use the noodle looking out for the bird while also managing to not get yourself beaked/clawed. The bird seemed pretty calm given the situation.

Love this look on the osprey though...

Had to watch this so fired up the PC. Great footage and rescue. Like others said - it was amazing that he seemed to be so calm while you removed the hook.
