I spent a few days off the BC coast fishing for salmon and although the fish were not co-operating, I did manage to come home with some fresh fish and enjoyed some great humpback whale watching. This whale apparently comes through the channels we were fishing in every year. At some time, he must have gotten too close to a large ship. Damage to his tail fin makes him or her, easy to identify. How do you tell the sex of a whale? We were not interested in getting that close.
When the whales weren’t entertaining us, it was the eagles turn. They constantly sat perched in the nearby trees watching the fishing boats. If you caught small fish, you could whistle for an eagle and leave your catch floating in the water to watch the eagles swoop down from the trees for an easy lunch.
