Third year juvenile Bald Eagle

We saw a clip on television news that three Bad Eagles were spotted at Lake Jennings in East County San Diego. We searched for many hours/ days and finally saw two in a tree. After tracking them for about an hour they finally went into a tree adjacent a cove where the light/ light angle was perfect. The juvenile spotted a trout near the surface and dove for it, and we shot away. The juvenile missed three times. Then the adult finally captured it and flew away. We went back many times since and no luck.
