10. I once caught an osprey on a Spanish Mackerel I was trying to land while beach fishing.

Fortunately, the leader broke near the hook after I beached the fish and and the bird flew off with part of our dinner.

12. That's nothing compared to the big dolphin who wanted the fish I brought in

while standing in waist deep water. He gave me a look, mammal to mammal, that said, "I want that fish." You aren't supposed to feed them, but he was bigger than me so I threw it to him. He grabbed it, then jumped clear of the water with the ladyfish crosswise in his/her mouth. Quite a show for the tourists, which included some people I knew.
