This seal thing really intrigues me.I have fished the cape for about 23 years and noticed the seal populations booming.I love to fish from south beach and walk for miles south on monomoy.I had some of my best days with seals following me up and down the beach.They were like dogs looking for a snack as I would release a bass.It was dicey getting in a small bass.But if the bass was over 15lbs they did not go in for the kill.I am not sure if the problem is that they compete for forage or actually prey on the Bass???Al/Frank...what were the seal populations like 30-40 years ago???What were the herring populations like back then also??
On another note .I drive by the water every single day of the year around the Jones beach area on long island.This year we had a fantastic herring run and banged many good bass on them through December.The large groups of seals that I have been watching the last 4 years are nowhere to be seen.Only the occasional
small group.Maybe more herring up north this year also and they decided not to go this far south.
