    Hah indeed it was Brian, that is up until we formed the fly/herring brigade to keep him from his favorite water

    Back in the day we would see a lot of dead seals. Usually death was a result of small arms fire.

    You should just start calling in a poacher (with license plate) whenever you see him out there. Maybe with a few calls they'll send someone out to check. Throwing the sculpins on the beach pisses me off too! I noticed though that one of the other guys did that as well and when one person went to throw it back in the guy said "Just leave it, there are too many of them in the water." Good to know we have some marine biologists fishing with us. If you don't want to catch sculpins, don't drag your F&%$#ing herring across the bottom!

    Like I said a few years back when they are munching on steel up in the upper skagit are they game meat or sushi?

    Oh, this guy has got to go! Anybody messing with my stag horns is simply not worthy of taking even one more cast! I plan to stalk the beach now and catch him in the act those sculpin are my friends.

    I saw a ratfish someone had tossed on the beach a couple of weeks ago. I think if I had seen it happen I would have brained the twat that did it. Haven't seen sculpin d-day, but I would be rather upset if I did.

    The more I look at that head wound, the more it looks like a knife cut it. It might be the handiwork of a marine biologist checking out what the seal died from. The roughness in the meat around the wound is probably by seagulls and crows.

    Imagine coming up on that scene. "Plainclothes" biologist stooped over, hacking away at a dead seal's head. If it were me I'd be tempted to say something like "This will be the best soup EVER."

    I came across a dead seal on the beach last year right around the time that the Seattle plastic bag ban was being debated. I had considered for a moment at least stuffing its mouth with Whole Foods reusable tote bags. That would be a conundrum.
