Those seals are targeting white perch. The stripers are by-catch.

I’ve been seeing more at times in the spring in the kayak and I do see the mass of fish stay away from the area of seal concentrations. Some years you barely see the seals but when they show, it can be a sight. I would also assume this brings larger predators following the seals and may also have an effect on our local fish. I just think the pressure on our fish with more anglers than ever and with more technology to target the fish just makes a huge impact. I’m sure Mass. and Conn. has way more seals and would like to hear their side of the seal impact on the fishery.

What are we complaining about today?  Seals?  Yea they've been sunning in the winter for years.  I still catch my fish each year.  Nothing to see here.
