've been out kayak fishing for 4 of the past 5 days. Those days included a kayak tournament (CKA - Shearon Harris Lake) and a few float trips. All told, I landed 9 different species of fish: Warmouth, LM Bass, Yellow Perch, Redfin Pickerel, White Perch, Pumpkinseed, Red-ear sunfish, bluegill and white crappie. I also lost a big Chain Pickerel and had two Bowfin stalk my lure to the kayak.

This is one of the highlights: while I was fishing this field of grass and lilies, I saw a fish move in a hole. And then I saw a shadow cruise over the green. Looking up, I saw the source: an Osprey that had locked onto the moving fish. The raptor hung suspended for a moment then dropped in near-vertical fall claws and beak first, hitting the brakes with a pump of its wings as it touched the water. Like that, a 15 inch bass was airlifted to its death.
