bobcats eating your catch

well, it is late, so i will make this the quick version... was paddling till just after dark, got back to the ole ford with 3 bass about 10lbs worth, not quite but close, i walk up to the ride to deposit my belongings and hear some niose and splashing by the river, where i left my fish tied up next to my canoe, and what do I see, but a big, and i mean big, bobcat having my fish for dinner! I made noise, threw rocks, etc etc, only to piss him off.. so i sat back and watched him devour my dinner, as long as i stayed about 20" away, he didn't mind me enjoying the show, just wish he woulda left me one...what a night, I really need to invest in a camera that is worth a s#!! it was a pretty cool sight...

Normally I'm a catch & release kind of guy, but if I knew that I could get that show I'd be tempted to keep a couple.

very cool onece i new he was only interested in my catch ;) he didn't even mind me watching as long as i kept a distance, when he was finished he just walked off like it was a typical day..

I do the same sometimes. It depends greatly on the water too. Some water can't handle any harvest, but some water requires it. I tend to follow the state biologist's recommendations as I have little understanding of how to know when to do which beyond what I've just said.
the Bob was probably watching ..........|

yeah, he may come back another time, it was only my 3rd time launching there... next time I will be better prepared, I have been saveing for a good camera... if you all have any suggestions on that it would be appreciated as reviews on line are sporatic in that there are almost as many bad as good for any one camera...
