On Saturday last week we had this 500 lb sea lion hanging around us all morning. He came up in back of my boat one time and spit and hissed at me. So I bonked him on the head with a 4oz weight. Hoping he might leave. Well this turned out to be a bad idea. He got even later when I had a big fish on and was about ready to net the beast when sammy sea lion came up and stole my fish. That wasn't bad enough he also got my best kwick fish. Then just to flip us the fin he swam around in back of my boat for 10 minutes playing with his new toy the fish. He did however have Mr killer attached to his lower jaw. Has anyone else had a fish taken this way upriver? I did manage to land a nice 12# hen which we landed very quickly.
