    Harvesting them is about the only way to control them.

    The responses are pretty funny on here . Similar comments were made on Big waters Edge, and some idiots lost their biscuit, forcing the moderator to delete people's comments. Some people just don't have a sense of humor.

    I don't think anyone is trying to be funny. They've been protected for too long and thier numbers are out of control. Not just Southern California but up in Washington and Oregon as well. There's already been measures taken and a cull program was put in
    Place a year or so ago. Not sure what came of it but wardens were supposed to kill a few hundred of them.

    Culling program in Washington or california? The environmental hippie idiots down here would go crazy if they knew about that in socal.

    As I mentioned on Big waters Edge, they should be regulated like coyotes, open all year, no bag limit. That comment got deleted along with other people's posts because some damn idiot went apeshit about the comments. Kind of pissed me off because the high number of sea lions is extremely dangerous, especially for kayakers. One guy got bit, and others got flipped by those rabies infested pests.

    I put in a garden this year and have been ordering all kinds of seeds. I ordered seeds from Thailand (on Ebay, you can get almost anything on Ebay) for a "Dragon's Claw Pepper" they are supposed to be hotter than a ghost pepper and they are about the size of half a pencil, long and skinny. I want to grow them just to put in a dean when we have seals around the boat. I can't wait to see the look on their face when they get a mouthful of that hot pepper. I would imaging we could train them pretty darn quick after the get ahold of these.

    The chili peppers work. You don't need the crazy hot ones either...a normal habenero works just fine and you can still use them in the kitchen. I've even used serrano. Keep some dead baits and when the knot heads pop up you stuff a pepper in a bait and lob it to them.

    Isn't this why we have seal bombs ? Carefully insert into fresh dead mackerel, light, and toss the seal a treat. I'd sure like to watch.

    How about we quit rescuing them and let survival of the fittest and nature run its course.

    Just kill them. There smart dogs and learn fast.
    Then we would go back to our old truce and they would stay back, sometimes....
