Oh God seals! Is more like it. I am not a fan of these suckers/bellie rippers. I guess some people are.

Tell me, please, why would it be a great thing to see a bunch of seals between here and there? Please tell me.

Perhaps my view of these fine animals can be changed.

Why is it good to NOT see seals? Nobody in Florida complains about the dolphins. Yeah, when they're around the fishing sucks but so what? Move on. The ocean is big enough for ALL species!.

Only reason I don't like them is because of what I heard about them spreading parasites to fishConfused

They've been around longer than us. We're the one's intruding on their turf.

over the last 8 years i note the seals come inside jones inlet earlier each year. within 1-1 1/2 weeks after seeing the first of the seals, the bass bite slows down considerably. so the seals come in the bay earlier each year and i notice the fishing slows so i don't like to see them. last winter i saw them in front of florence ave beach. that's the furthest i've seen them from the inlet

Seen a seal in JI two weeks ago, a bit early I think.

Be safe.
