By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. 200 feet below, it watched the water intently. It knew it was only a matter of time. The ache in its belly drummed out a pang in its feet as it clutched its perch. The air was perfect. A light breeze came out of the west and slowly caressed the landscape around it with a mix of salty spray and light fog. From its peripheral, others darted back and forth but it's focus was unshakable. It knew what had to be done. It would have to be swift and sure. Bobbing in the tidal push below was a small craft. Four people on board were trolling for salmon off the coast of Sitka, Alaska. Little did they know they were being watched from high above. As the conversation switched from home towns to big catches of their past, the rear right corner rod bent over, whizzing with the sound of a fish on! The youngest of the four grabbed the rod and began reeling. Spying the activity below, it crept closer to the edge. Then, the bald eagle plummeted from its branch, diving down and stealing the catch. It's belly would ache no more. Until next time, Good Fishing!
