This is a late report but I thought it was neat that a pelican landed on my boat. Needed to run the boat before Christmas so got a decent sunny day and bay was not rough. Mostly just a boat ride but I always take a pole if I'm going on the boat. Had a couple friends and drifted along 3-M. As soon as we pull up, a friendly Pelican lands on our bow, guess he was tired. Turns out he had a jig head stuck in his foot. You kind of see it on the camera phone. We tried to help but he wouldnt let us get close. He flew off and we caught a few trout. Everyone caught something, boat ran great, surprise guest, back safe - good day.
