Whopper Plopper Lure vs a Hungry Bird!

Years ago i had a seabird pull my tuna jig out of the water behind my boat but he dropped it back. Today a large Heron type of bird dive-bombed my River2Sea Whopper Plopper 90 surface plug and got stuck on it. Luckily a father & son was fishing off to my left and it took all 3 of us to safely release this angry fowl. He even came back to either stare me down or thank me.

It was a weird day for birds. I took my sandwich out for lunch and a bunch of ducks attacked me, biting my feet & toes. Then a goose chased me as well. I was whipping/spin casting this canal that my buddy Mark Gates showed me this month. Earlier i found a sandy beach that had sardine schools being chased by predators but decided to return in the evening because nothing was hitting.

I left home at dark, returned at dark. No fish or "fish stories", only tall bird "tails". Lol! When i returned to the area where the sardines were, there was no activity. The 2 guys next to me did catch a Trevally & a Barracuda. My legs are sore from walking through the sand at night to parking aways from this area as well. Also hungry as i gave half of my food to a homeless guy.

Not one of my better days but it was nice to be outside.
