Pelican Pesters Paddleboarders

Even a novice angler knows how much of an annoyance birds can be while fishing. Whether they are picking at your trolling spread, attacking your topwater, or trying to devour your catch, they can be quite the nuisance. Of course, when they become hooked, it’s never a fun job of playing surgeon with a frantic bird. Florida Sportsman member palmbeachpete and his fishing partner had a “fun” experience with a pelican while paddleboard fishing. This pesky pelican would not go away! It had it’s mind set on a “jack dinner,” and was not going to give up anytime soon.
