That was SOOOO cool! I would be more than happy to lose a fish just to witness something like that. Its not often you get to rub noses with a pod of wild orcas. Tourists in Vancouver pay $80 just to catch a glimpse of one on a huge charter boat. What an absolute thrill to have those magnificent animals right up against the hull, well worth the price of half a salmon in my opinion. You could catch hundreds of salmon over many years without seeing a sight like that (though by all the F-bombs, I doubt those guys would agree with me!).

Sorry, was I being offensive? If so, that was certainly not my intention!

I don't think MM was talking about you I think he was refering to the "harpoon" comment. Either way I know it was all light hearted and all good. I too would love to see them in the wild but I would have to say if it was a regular occurence it would get old quick >:(

I totally agree, once is enough! :)

very cool. interesting that the whale didn't take the whole fish ... like maybe she's done that before and had a lip ache from it.

Several years ago while on a party boat out of Monterey, a pod of orcas swam alongside the boat, close enough to practically rub against it. They stayed quite a while and it was a real treat to see them that close.

But even though they are thrilling to see, I am pretty sure I too, would think enough was enough if they hung around all day and snatched all my fish!
