the first thing you do is have your anchor out, on the deck and ready to go into the water. light up your floats, contain your rope, don't use big pieces of fish or fish heads... keep your bait in small chunks. if you chop some up and make it like a milk shake and freeze it in small containers to put in with your regular bait it will work the best... this and small pieces will help with the seal problem. they are looking for a meal and will just leave it alone... or they did for me when I hooped in the bay, out in the open ocean there is no problem with the seals. Remember, before you even leave the dock, get your anchor ready to go into the water.... the boat and life you save may be your own.

thanks for the anchor tip. So you anchor first and then drop hoops or you have it out just to be ready?

have the anchor out ready just in case your rope gets stuck in the prop or your engine dies
that's it... you will be by rocks or surf etc. and if something happens put the anchor in first so it can grab and then deal with the problem. Also make sure someone, who isn't going with you, knows that you are going, about where you will be, about when you will be back, and a time that if you are not back by to call for help. the ocean is much different at night and shit happens and it happens fast. you won't see the fog for example until it is right up on you.... looking out over the ocean it just looks black.... keep an eye on the wind, if the wind comes up, start pulling your nets. wind in the day time is normal, hot land cool water creates the wind.... if it comes up at night there is usually weather pushing it and it will get rough fast.
