Very cool.

that long rod kicked your ass!

I don't blame the guy being hesitant about reaching down for an iron hooked YT.

If a bear is trying to kill your cow, your allowed to shoot and kill the bear. That sea lion should have been shot !

Wow! That was something to see. It's a cross between fishing and sealing....like feeling? I like the scare tactics you used in the beginning...roooaaaarrrr!!! Looked liked most of that YT was not damaged. Great save and fun video!

I will immediately make an audio recording of you guys yelling at the seal and keep it at the ready on my rig. Very effective, and totally amusing. Funny, the things we do in the moment. Thanks for posting.

Good job capturing the whole thing on video. Here are a couple stills from the trip. The second one shows the seal-mangled tail that was so hard getting to the boat.

good job!

Fishing the Mission Bell last year- APR I think. At the RP -nice grade of slugs. Seal got hold of a nice YT for 20 or so minutes. Angler never gave up. Some boaters in a 15ft gregor or BR saw what was happening, charged the seal to run it over, when it let go. Was a pretty cool move! Never seen that one before.

Well done gentlemen. Those dogs can be relentless.
Several years ago at the islands I was in a tug of war with a big knot head over a yellowtail. I yelled at my buddy Steve to throw something at the sea lion. The dumb SOB looks around the boat and the only thing he can find to throw is a bottle of Jack Daniels. Next thing you know a bottle of JD is flying through the air and beaned the sea lion right in the head. The dog let go and we were able to ski the dead yellow to the boat. Not much damage to the yellow but we were out a bottle of Jack. Until we looked back to where all the excitement had started and there was a bottle of JD floating. Motored over, picked up the bottle, and had a celebratory swig.

Good job on not giving up and getting your fish. Congrats

Treat the gaff like a pool cue and only grab it once you have color. That way you can clear rods and help out the angler without looking like Ms. Bopeep Nice YT
