    So fished the horseshoe today picked at some sculpin and rockfish and this juvenile sea lion starts circling the boat and trying to get onto it. Im thinking this thing must have been rescued at some point so it now thinks every boat and people are there to feed it. had to keep hitting it with the rope puller and start up the motor to move out of the area and get away from him. what a pain in the ass. Why do people insist on saving what mother nature deemed to weak to survive?

    My 9 year old son was robbed of his first yellowtail by a sea lion. Ripped it right from the gaff. Ever since, no matter how far away they are he goes for his slingshot. He doesn't think their cute anymore.

    Pretty sure I had the same juvenile dog trying to get on my boat Tuesday in La Jolla. He bombed up to the boat, circled a few times and then started trying to jump aboard. Ballsiest dog i have ever seen. Seemed friendly too but wasnt about to let him hitch a ride.

    In 100 years they will hopefully be culled down to 10% of their current population due to Darwin's "Natural Selection". The idiots who are today saving these overeating bastards when they wash up to die on the shore to die from various ailments, are actually causing the ultimate demise of the species. The sick ones that are saved by the bleeding hearts are meant to die so as to rid the gene pool of the weakest seals. By "saving" the sick and weak seals the dumbass environmentalists are actually contributing greatly to the demise of the entire species. I won't be around to see it, but it will be a great day when most of them have expired. Seals are a key part of the food chain though, so some need to survive, but as it stands today there are far too many of them for my taste.

    Don't go THAT route, you'll have every bleeding-heart sea kitten cuddler on I'mWitless News raising hell. Better to have that lot in their herb gardens and at their yoga classes than getting them stirred up. It's a PITA at present, but sooner or later the populations will crash and their numbers will moderate. Not soon enough, AFAIC.

    When I was a young kid we are talking 1968 we were at the shoe and a 400 to 500 pound seal swims up to the stern of my grandfather 20' boat. He has 2 bullet holes in his side looked like he had been shot with a 22. Dammed thing trys to come over the transom. Now this was 1968, grand pa pulls his 45 out of the cabin and puts two in the big guys melon. PROBLEM SOLVED, it was the most humaine thing to do.
    Now before anyone wants to threaten to call DFG or the Feds this was 1968 grandpa has been gone for many years.

    Same happened to me 2 years back, I believe they are juveniles that don't know no better.
    Had to hit mine on the nose with butt side of the gaff. Brought this up and lots of guys sent pictures of the pups riding home with them on the passenger seat.

    once I had one launch itself out of the water and onto my buddies boat swim platform at the back of the boat ! it looked distressed like it did nt really want to be there. scared the shit out of us as that was the last thing we expected to happen. jabbed at it with the net until it got off the boat. we looked for a shark,but did nt see any. a lot of whites in our area around Duxbury reef,it could have been chased out of the water.
