almost seal food
« on: September 07, 2010, 03:07:42 AM »
i was kayak fishing for kelp bass in an inlet in san diego yesterday. they have bait barges here which have big tanks on barges that hold live sardines for boaters to come by and get live bait. i pulled up beside the barge and hooked my seat to it so i wouldnt get rushed away by the tide, some idiot coming to get bait flies by me going about 20, 10 feet away from me. my kayak got caught under the barge and the wake pushed the other side up until i was completly sideways, the only thing that stopped me from tipping over was my elbow being slammed into the barge to stop myself. there was also giant seals all around me screaming at the females and swimming under my kayak, probably just curious, but still intimidating being about 7 feet long and probably 300 lbs each. is it really that hard to miss a guy in a giant hat sitting in a yellow kayak with 3 8 foot rods. some people are just stupid, wasnt the only time that day that i got messed up by boaters hauling a$$ 15 feet away from me. just thoght id vent a little bit, plus the lizard fish stole all my ghost shrimp so i only caught 1 bass that was under sized.

That's pretty wild story fishcrazy. Getting slammed into a barge and having huge seals swimming around you at the same time. Wow. Sounds like the jaws of the west coast. Good luck out there, hope you get some fish next time.
