What to do with a hooked Pelican?

With just a little extra attention to your surroundings, you and your pelican friends can both have a great day out on the water.

Although its wingspan is over 6 ½ feet, a pelican weighs only 8-10 pounds and your fishing line will hold it. Note: the bird won’t know you are trying to help and will try to defend itself. Pelicans do not have teeth, but they have a hook at the beak’s tip and its edges are sharp and could give you a small “paper” cut.

IMPORTANT, NEVER CUT THE LINE IF YOU CATCH A PELICAN.
