Fished kingston this morning for about 3 hours. G/G hotspot flasher, and green/white coyote. Hooked a nice 7-9lbs wild right when got there then had a seal follow me around the rest of the time, getting 2 more fish before I could get them to the boat and 1 more that I was horsing in to avoid the seal and lost as well. So good fun action but nothing to bring home. Great water, and nice weather.
I know what you mean about the seals. I have seen many aggressive seals but not usually in area 10, this year I cant get rid of them. I even steer towards other boats then make a quick turn and try and hand my seal off to them, but I cant shake them.
When I first got there and there and I was the only boat fishing it didn't suprise me for him to be following. But as the morning went on there was other boats in the area and he still chose to follow me around. I have also been at possession and have had them sit there and wait for me to show up,(or so it seems) :roll:
This is my first run in with a seal at kingston, and I have had a pretty good BM season so far this winter at that paticular location.
We did Jeff Head this morning... started at around 8am from Edmonds. It was pretty snotty getting there and only got worse as the morning wore on. Pretty tough fishing until around 11am when the wind died and it flattened right down. We managed 7 to the boat 6 were 18-21" and one in the box at about 6-7lbs. We caught all on 4" plugs tight to the bottom.
Fished Manchester saturday morning, man was it ugly out there. The fishing was hot, we had 5 to the boat in about a hour and a half lost a good one to a seal (time for a slingshot) and got a small keeper. The wind quit about 11:00 and the barometer just fell and the bite was off but it was still better than staying home.Jason
