We are enjoying a warm dry spring in mid coast Maine this year. I am usually eager to get out and the weather has made possible many more outings than usual. Included in that are a number of early client trips that have me exploring the waters earlier this year. Water temperatures are still chilly but warming a little even on the cloudy days. Improving the fishing almost daily.
One aspect of being on the water so early that I had forgotten is how much more visible everything on the shore is. With no leaves it is simple to see how close a camp is through the woods or watch a flock of turkeys make their way up a hillside. The eagles are around and nesting on almost every pond where I fish certainly a normal sight for any trip. The bare branches though make it easy to see eagles perched on the shore and get a really good look at them. As you can see they allow us to get close and I am sure can see what we are up to.
Fishing has been very good and if I know where the fish are the eagles certainly do too. Which accounts for us being in the same places so much of the time. They add a great aspect to my early seasons trips.
I hope that you enjoying the spring that comes everywhere before the coast of Maine. I’m looking forward to spending time outdoors with each of you this coming season and showing you an eagle or two, even if the leaves are on the trees.
