I just witnessed one of our resident Bald Eagles make two passes low over my surface feeding fish after the feeder went off. Two weeks ago he ate a floating dead bass that had swallowed one of my hooks.

I’m afraid he has my fishery pegged.

So the Eagle liked pu.... I can't

That plan would definitely work.

You would need to "feed train" the eagle with yappy dogs for a few months first. (Does Texas Hunter make a feeder that throws Yorkies without jamming?)

After your eagles are properly trained, they would definitely be the top predator in your neighborhood "pond" culling the undesirable (loud) biomass. laugh

Border Collies - smarter than a chimpanzee, cuddlier than a newborn baby, more dedicated than Batman's valet.

Ours only yips to be let out to the bathroom, on weekends when we sleep in.

All of the good pondmeisters on PB understand the importance of proper experimentation!

Snipe would probably be eminently qualified to run such an experiment. Good thing for all of the yap dogs that he is already tied up performing important feed experiments.

*** Disclaimer for the humor and common sense impaired.

No dogs were ever threatened in these posts. FishinRod is a well know idiot around these parts. He sometimes makes sarcastic comments in the forum - that is otherwise populated with competent experts for all matters that are pond related.

I have an Osprey and now a mature Bald Eagle showing up. I prefer them vs the Great Blue Heron.

Oh, yeah.

Sunday she ran back and forth chasing the tractor as I spread 21 loads of manure* - about a 1200 yard round trip. She slept good Sunday night.


* - No, Sunil, I don't' just spread it here.
