Fisherman Ashton Phillips was recently on his boat in Rugged Point Lodge in Kyuquot, on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island when he caught the most incredible video. Phillips says that he and his group were just sitting in a bay cutting salmon strips to bait halibut with, and they decided to place a large chunk of fish on the boat’s motor. Well, that probably wasn’t the best idea because then this happened.

“I saw this one eagle kind of circling and it was along the shoreline, so I took out my camera to snap a picture of it,” Phillips said. “All of a sudden out of nowhere, it started heading toward the boat. I didn’t even realize it was coming for the big chunk of salmon until obviously it snagged it and flew off. It was a pretty surreal experience.”
“Everybody’s been very, very positive about it,” Phillips said. “I thought maybe people would start saying ‘Well you guys baited it, you’re feeding the wildlife,’ but we didn’t. And it hasn’t gone down the negative road, so it’s nice to see people just really enjoyed the video.”
