Ibas – Mouth Full

While at Bryan Beach an Ibas caught my attention when he snagged this fish.  I have never seen an Ibas catch a large fish much less get it down.  I was thinking this could be interesting.  Well, he drew a lot of attention with such a catch.  He tried to get it down quickly but it wasn’t to be.  Darting in and out around other “I want what you have” birds and just trying to find a little alone time wasn’t easy.  But he persisted and finally found a little “alone time” and…and he…dropped the fish.  It was only about a couple of inches deep as he poked and poked trying to find his catch.  I think we have all lost some big ones along the way so what do you do…keep fishing.

    Cool capture David. Don’t think I’ve ever seen one eat a fish.

    That’s a great shot David. Very cool to see one catch a fish. Good work.

    Great photo. Yes, losing the big one can be annoying.
