And Now, SEALS
I knew the pogies in the upper Bay would eventually attract something big. That big stuff I thought would be stripers. Wrong. It's seals. I saw a real big one today in the Providence River feasting on menhaden. That spells trouble for stripers. In the past, I have noticed that when the seals move in, the stripers move out, or they are preyed upon relentlessly. Not good news for the winter fishery.
