    The places in the pic posted need a big sea,the longer it has been on the less seals there are.If you fish the "norps" on the front when it is flat,of course the seals are going to be there,theres many a fish been snaffled on the surface there by a big furker with flippers...tight lines :wink: :happy:

    I didn’t know that we would be pestered by seals, if I had known there would be the amount we saw I would not have gone, all I can say judging by the size of some of the fat gits there are still a lot of fish there as well. :hungry:

    Because there is a colony there , does it mean that the seals hunt there as well as settling ..are they just after the macky through the summer months or do they feed on cod ....

    I have just dug out some pics of a newborn white fur seal with its mother that I took about 10 years ago, at the back of gristhorpe wyke.

    Unfortunately my scanner is not working so I cant put them up :angry:

    They definitely do feed on the cod and that area has seen a huge decline in fishing over the last 10 years :sad:

    Casty used to be my fav summer spot bar none, but I hav'nt bothered with it for 8 years or so now apart from the odd trip ( all blanked ) !!

    I remember one of the all england matches being won from down there with the 2nd placed fish too, both coming from the far end of the scar, both fish over 10lb :surprise:

    All the top names were down there that day but I would bet you would be lucky to see more than half a dozen down there these days even in the right conditions.

    smashing pic bob :happy:

    the seals down casty must travel distances as they patrol up to the brigg and in to the bay and are freqent visitors to the local line fishermen ,often several miles out to see.
    i think casty is just there playground , nursery and reserve larder . the remoteness is also what keeps them there ,they see few humans compared to other areas.and access is quite difficult.

    fishing is about odds ,
    and when fish are scarce,you have to ask yourself if you fancy your chances against 40 other anglers (seals)? if you blank ,do you blame the conditions,your bait or the seals?
    i'd rather go elsewhere and blank, then at least i cant blame the seals. imo
