Amazing pictures and so thrilling to be that close the eagle, but an eagle does eat the heads of fish, so fisherman in that particular lake, knowing this should do everything in their power to make sure the eagle is not injured.

I don't care if it was the perfect specimen.. If an eagle chose to swoop down and take a fish off MY line.. I would be absolutely ecstatic!

Talk about the "One That Got Away"! We have Bald Eagles here around Milford Kansas but I have never heard of that happening. Of course, we don't fish trout here either.

I wonder if it is both of the parents taking turns? Gotta admit, very resourceful birds!

That's awesome! I love to fish but don't have the best luck with it but if this happened to me I'd be in shock.

Hi...

Incredible performances captured on camera. WOW...!!

That's one bird that knows how to "outwit" the humans, which it appears to be very acclimated to.

Absolutely fearless.
