I inadvertently live lined a blue to catch a seal last weekend. Next weekend I am going to throw a 10/0 circle weighted and see if I can hook the seal and live line that Bas*&rd off shore there have been some big sharks reported off cape cod lately.

He took my plug leader and fish and took off! I am not that worried about him. I was actually a bit ticked. Custom plug a mile walk in the sand one group of blitzing fish (like clockwork btw at this location) and a seal ruined it.
It was like watching a mutual of omaha show.

the outer cape is practically unfishable in a lot of spots due to them . nuke em all i say . one of my favorite beaches has a colony on a sandbar that has hundreds on it at low tide and several more in the water. surf fishermen have a lot to contend with closures for birds , limited access to some great spots , and numerous other stuff. throw seals in the mix and its almost time to take up golf. i admit id have a tough time looking one in the face and blowing its head off.they are mammals and on top of that i give them credit for their smarts and cunning but they are a BIG problem where i fish at times and getting worse at a drastic rate.a few big sharks in the area arent going to make much of a dent

I agree about the damned seals. I hate the seals when I'm fishing although I do admire them as cool animals. I couldn't kill one myself but I'd be psyched if we had some more sharks move in and reduce the population. Since they are protected and the sharks are over fished there are few, if any, natural predators for seals left. They've ruined my favorite surfcasting spot on a backside beach in Wellfleet and I've also seen them on the haba outer islands and when I do I don't catch anything. If we could only train them to eat the dogfish I'd be psyched! If they can be trained to play with a ball in a pool why not as a dogfish hunter? LOL

Fortunately it was only a bluefish that it took from me.

I was surfcasting for bluefish some years ago on the outerbanks when a blitz of slammers chased a school of sea trout up into the surf... I threw down the rod and "caught" 13 fish in about 45 seconds... They were all between 25 and 27 inches long...

I bet what I did is illegal today!?!?!?

I don't care for seals just like any other fisherman. But remember why the seals are there. THEY LIVE IN THE OCEAN!!!!!! THATS WHERE THEY BELONG!!!!!!!! I could see being real upset if you found one in bed with your wife or something We are in their house when we are fishing. It does suck though.
