A seal was chowing down on herring in the Wareham run this afternoon at the Elks club. Anyone get a photo or vid? I have a link to one but it's not on an allowed SOL link.

After you told me, Sandy and I ran down and saw the seal. Talk about the proverbial kid in the candy shop. He was wallowing around in thousands of live herring. Never saw one that far upriver.

BTW, that used to be an el primo, numero uno place to get cigar smelt.

anyone noticing substantially more dead herring?

Funny you should bring that up, last week on the TV program the "Deadliest Catch" they had a whole tray full of them dead,, and they made the producer bite one in half and, you guessed it he puked.......................

Yesterday I finally saw a lot of herring (by todays standards) in the Town Brook in Plymouth. There was a Game Warden and several others with him netting a few of them below the Jenny Grist Mill. They looked like they may have been stripping their eggs.

I didn't see any this evening at the Charles river dam in Watertown. No birds, no fishermen either. The water surge was still pretty high because of Tuesday's rain.
