I know its been said elsewhere on this forum and I am not going to be heading for a seal colony deliberately, but I am also coming around to the idea that the presence of seals isnt necessarily a disaster. All season I have been plagued by them virtually every trip out.
I went out yesterday and almost immediately of course, up popped mrs seal. Anyway, I cast in its general direction to scare it away and fished on as the swell built.
Within ten mins she was back. Again I cast in its general direction and the plug fell maybe 10 feet to the right of and beyond it. Due to the sea noise this time the seal didnt notice and continued to bob up and down staring at me. Five cranks of the reel and this feisty fella latched on. Must have been within feet of the seal when it hit.
Slipped it back well away from the seal. It was the only fish of a short session as the swell became unfishable.
Oh, the fish was taken as have 70% of my fish this year on a Fladen Conrad 120mm in silver/black 3 for £.3.20 delivered off ebay last winter!
