Well the loons are back, number of loons I saw was about equal to the number of fish I caught.

I fished Tuesday and today in the upper White and totaled about 20 bass over 2 days, 3 keepers.  This sunny weather has got them out in the channel again chasing small, scattered shad.  If you can get on one when they come up, they'll bite but it's tough to get on them as they just aren't schooled up and are scattered.  I caught some on 3.3 and 2.8 Keitechs and a couple on the 1/4 oz Kastmaster.  It's an early bite, it gets tough after 10 AM or so.

I did fish the Ned some, better bite Tuesday on the Ned, today I think I had two good hookups on it and they both got off and that was about it.

On the plus side, the weather is great.

Lots of boats out too.  There's some type of FLW/BFL tourney going on and quite a few locals out.

WT 60-61

I found this one in Spring branch in 2015. He was flopping his wings funny and couldn't dive.  Thought maybe he was wrapped in some line.I grabbed him from the water but I coudn't find anything wrong

They are very curious birds. I had a few days were they would swim under my boat fast and around 10-15 feet deep. I actually bought a loon call (4 different calls)  in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. It

Nice @Quillback! We get a lot of loons here in the winter. Surprisingly large birds. I have never seen them in their summer plumage. May next summer if we get to New Hampshire or Vermont.

Not seeing any loons lately but will see them in due time. We have had an unusual bird sighting. Over the last three weeks we have been seeing a young male peacock. He has been seen on one of the properties near our house. Someone looks to be feeding it. Livie and I hadn't  seen it in a few days then there he was walking along the road. Don't know how long he will last due to possibly lack of feed or the abundant foxes around us.

Man I hate peacocks, they are the loudest bird out there.  I wonder if they are any good to eat?  Never heard of anyone eating one.

Haven't seen any pelicans this fall, seems the only tine I see them on Table Rock is early spring and then they are only around for a few days.

Thought  about what they would taste like as well. Probably like pheasant. To me most upland birds taste pretty similar.
