Alright guys we were out fishing and had a nice school of good grade yellowtail off the stern of the boat eating up chum about 6 nice 20+ pounders until the seals showed up scaring them away now the seal would not leave us alone eating the chum an eating our bait as soon as another boat showed up they bugged him for a couple min and the chum brought up the school of yellow tail again and again the seals came back to us and gone we managed to bring up 2 nice yellows but dam seals suck what can I do to keep them away ??? Seriously the legal way can I shoot them with air rifles like the charter boats do???

Non-lethal and non-toxic. Slingshots with marbles work really well I've heard.

Ouuu!! I really like that idea!! :) Good tip actually.

Or... elephant tranquilizers!! >=] It's non-lethal and non-toxic (depending on how you define toxic).

Are slingshots legal? I've heard that they are but I tend to think not. Anyone know and have any documentation proving either way?

Wrist rocket slingshot and large marbles have done wonders for me in the past. After they get beaned in the noggin, that one at least will haul ass and leave you alone.

If everyone of us did this, I believe they would get a healthy respect for us.

I have been doing that for a while but now they have learned to stay under the surface just enough to be safe. They are smart bastards. Now I have mixed up a concoction paste of hot mustard and cayenne pepper in a squeeze bottle to put in dines or macs, a couple of them and they take off.

I have heard of funny stories of macs stuffed with Alka Seltzer setting them off into a burping frenzy.
