Default Simpson River 16 December 2011

Started with fog (see below)

Ended with beautiful (see below)

Notice the absence of fish...I was skunked, no bites, taps, dinks..nothing, threw Rattletraps then threw and trolled 47 different soft baits....nothing. First time ever skunked at this spot...

Turned out to be a beautiful day and got a great look at a bald eagle...

Great pictures, thanks for sharing. Got to watch a bald eagle hovering and then diving on a fish right off the bridge near the fish camp the other day. Or course I was driving at the time and damn near wrecked but I had never seen that before. I have been on fly in trips up in Canada and everywhere else. Seen a lot of eagles on nest, etc. but that was the first time I got lucky enough to see one hunt like that. It was awesome.
