This seems to be the year that seals became a game changer for a lot of fishermen. And not just the cape outer beaches but the north shore,  the canal, and block isl. And im certain in other areas that have gone unreported.

Yup.  Fisherman have had enough and have begun their own cull.

Anyone who fishes at Great Point at night knows full well what's going on.  You can hear the gunshots.

Why aren't dead seals washing ashore with gunshot wounds? 

I think at this point it's pretty clear that these shooting stories are just stirring of the pot.

Great Point rip take the dead, bleeding seals right out to sea where the Great Whites devour them.

I was fishing a bay spot last night that requires a long walk from shore in thigh-deep water to get to the spot at this particular tide stage.  Light breeze, no wave action and could hear a pin drop.  I heard a seal surface and exhale.  sounded like it was right inside my casting radius.  That ended my night a) fishing sucked and maybe that's why and b) scared the poop out of me and I almost walked on water.

 

That said, this season is the first time I've seen/heard seals at this spot.  Saw a few in the morning earlier in the Spring.  Big gross grey seals, not the cute little harbor seals either.  No bueno

Salty nailed another fish an hour later. That's two in an hour. By the looks of it, it was a nice 10 pounder. He was drifting on the fresh east tide, enjoying his fresh striper.

Salty put on quite a show this AM. Spooled some unsuspecting jamoke, then ate his fish in front of us.

Stopped by at ding dong road seeing if you were around this am to shoot the chit.

I had a treehouse brew for ya to test.

Next time
