Barred Owl

friend of mine caught this yesterday evening

“Well I only caught one tonight but it was a heck of a fight! Was fishing top water at dusk in the pond behind my house and had a barred owl swoop down and grab my Heddon Torpedo! Went through his foot in a soft spot right above his talons that were vicious looking. Luckily I was able to calm him down because I had to hold his talon to work the treble hook out! It eventually came out and he flew to a branch right beside me. Was pretty cool

Good job getting the hook out!
I bet that was a heck of time!

Crazy. I caught a duck one time when fishing. It swam down and ate my bait. Started flying around like crazy. I just cut the line.

Wow, that’s pretty crazy. Had some buddies hook a sea gull. They got it into the boat, pulled the hook out and for payment the seagull crapped all over their boat 😂

Caught a blue heron at Badin several years ago. Got tangled up in my Carolina rig. Got him in the boat and cut him loose. Didn't even try to stab us with his beak, which surprised me.

FIL caught a beaver one time. Tossed a 1/4oz rattle trap just as it came out of the water and he attacked it. We got it close to the boat but he was pissed and we had to cut the line.

Caught a goose one time it was like flying a kite. Had to cut the line on that one. Also water snake and a bunch of cooter turtles.

Caught a pelican once. Luckily another dude had a large towel and I was able to wrap it up tight and get the hook out of it's beak. I couldn't imagine an owl! He'd be eating my eyeballs out while I worked on the hook.
