Just made a ‘bomb’ as I call it... I think it’ll work... had some spare line laying around and a couple carabiners, drilled 4 small holes (2 on either end) slid the line through it, and connected the carabiners. Pop the ‘biners apart and you can open the lid. It won’t let me post pics, but it’s just a Promar tube. Where’s the whine about the new forum bugs thread!?

For the record they aren't seals. Try using the term lion and maybe some of these fucks that help protect them might wake up.

I think if more and more people do this, they might learn to be afraid of us again. Most probably think it’s illegal, but fish and game obviously knows there’s a problem or there wouldn’t be a whole page of items legal for deterrent.

Oh and fish and game said nothing they can do its federal ... for the record I called them too (federal fish and wildlife).. no return call . I WILL NOT BE BIT AGAIN
Shit man, you got bit!!!? The seals around us were literally running into my boat and lunging at the hoops when we dipped them back in the water to clean off the grass.

Isnt it odd that they will hunt down and kill mountain lions for dangerous interaction with humans but they wont do shit to a seal?Im with madrugador,If one comes on my boat uninvited again it gets a gaff or fishbilly straight to the head.
I think there was a story posted recently citing the reason cities are not doing anything about the seal problem is because tourists like to see them. The cities even recognized how disgusting they are making our docks and marinas but it was worth it to protect them for the tourism money. Ridiculous!

I may be more comfortable doing this offshore or even outside of the bay. Something needs to be done about the overpopulation so they learn we are not their next meal.

I think a lot of this seal problem has been caused by people dumping their bait at the end of the night . These seals are smart and have gotten used to being fed . You should always bucket your bait at the end of the night and dump it on the way in away from the waiting furbags .
We never delt with the seals while hooping so we were baffled to see all of our bait gone in less than an hour. Then they became very angry once we pulled the hoops. We have noticed the amount of seals has increased substantially when fishing lately. Maybe we notice more because there aren't very many of us out there vs the mass of people fishing during the summer.

After a ton of trial and error i built my own tubes with screw caps, havnt had a problem in two years, they dive give it a look and leave. Sold a few also....
I made some similar to these... 3" black PVC about 18" long with a carabiner on each end to attach to the net (similar to Dave Hansen's setup) ... have had the dogs try and try but they never get the bait and a lot of chew marks in the tubes but they never get the bait
