I was lucky enough to not have any trouble with the seals yesterday. Lots of bites but only one 5 lbs in the boat and another shaker released. I think i hooked a halibut of some size. played it for a short time then my old rod broke and the line followed suit shortly afterwards. if you catch something with a flasher and plastic with 170 feet of blue line and the top half of a rod let me know. Looking for a good new rod. Any reasonable ones out there needing a new home? The day was beautiful and warm. Not like today.
