also removing the slip tip dose not mean you will not lose your gear ,if you take a head on shot you will not be able to turn the seal to pull the shaft out and when it runs it will bend it into a hook and take you for the ride of your life .

Re: Aggresive Sea lion experiences

Agressive sea lion experiences? I've worked on sportboats in San Diego on and off since 1994. I have hundreds of stories about agressive sea lions.

The worst that I can think of though is from the dock at Point Loma sportfishing. Years ago, one of our deck hands was stepping off of the boat with a bag of fish and a BIG knothead lunged between the dock and boat to grab the fish, but got her wrist instead. It nearly pulled her between the boat and dock.

Everyone was a little upset to say the least. This was a big dog. One of the fat blonde headed bastards.
