The wife and I were fishing the back bay this morning when an osprey made a couple of dives on hooked bass. We thought it was kind of cool until it crashed into my hand as i was unhooking a small bass inside the boat. That ended our day on the water and started our day at urgent care. The osprey got the fish and I got three slices in my hand.
