As far as I know it’s still legal. Use common sense, and pay attention to what’s down the line.
The greenies will hate on you, but…. They hate on everyone.

    Wow
    That’s great news
    My pops used to blow up balloons and let us shoot them
    Super fun and challenging off the rolling boat
    I bet that would be a big no no now but I always see and pickup tons of Mylar balloons floating
    Around out there
    Might have to put some holes in them to let the air out before bringing them aboard
    Thanks boys

    Take a shotgun and add to the balloon roundup! They’re going in the drink eventually, so might as well have a fun time collecting them

    Shootings fun. Didn’t some dudes get busted for shooting near shore at Santa Cruz or something? I believe they were captured on one of the eagle nest cams…?

    only consideration I might add is that lead recoils in really unpredictable ways on water so use utmost caution…

    Done it many times. Shotguns with Clay pigeons. And pistols at floating gallon jugs that were tied to fishing lines so they didn’t sink out. Plastic.


    Three miles off shore. No boats in sight. Try and not let your shotgun shells fall in the water. Plastic!

    Should have gotten a medal.
    Yeah lost his boat and CG Capt. license too.
    Now there's 50 times more seals. Sucks.

    They are an ecological disaster in the making, ever since the MMPA was enacted in 1972.
    I am 95% sure the seal buggers will claim that it's the consumtive users, commercial and recreational anglers primarily, of our ocean resources that are primarily to blame.
    It's not our fault that there are too many of them. That is the enviro's doing.

    Back '78 or so, we were down Tanner way catching alberts.
    Motored over to SCI to anchor up for lunch and relax a bit.
    50' Monk with aft salon, we had a trap launcher mounted up over the cockpit.
    We're grillin' burgers and bustin' clays when the navy comes charging around the corner.
    They inform us via the loud hailer that if we want to be shooting we need to be a mile off the island.

    At least they didn’t shoot back.
