    President Doug. Is it still considered a "harvest" if you use Gorilla Glue?

    Depends on whether or not you're utilizing the meat and/or carcass.

    If you carry it away for a desired purpose, it's a harvest.

    If you leave the carcass behind, you're simply erradicating a pest.

    Simple.

    Sea lions suck. They are really territorial and I've had a few try to bluff charge me at Ocean Beach San Francisco, Linda Mar Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay. They are really pushy, and much larger than seals. They have a nice set of teeth too and I know of at least a couple of incidents where guys have had a meaty chunk taken out of their leg or Captain's Quarters.

    I'd be up for the pit vs. sea lion fight. The sea lion can hold his own plenty well on land, but will dominate in the water. The pit might have a slight advantage on land, but would drown in minutes if the sea lion took him on. You have to remember that sea lions constantly fight for mating rights with the females and are used to bloody fights in the water and on land. As much as I hate sea lions, they kill far fewer humans, so I'd have to go sea lion all the way. The pit would have about a 5% chance in the water, and a 45% chance on land. Sea lions are mean, and really tough. The pit would have a handful to deal with if put up against an equal sized sea lion. For a 50/50 land/water fight, the sea lion would win hands down.

    Dan Nelson, general manager of San Luis and Delta Mendota Water Authority in Los Banos, was amazed at hearing the sea lion story. "I've never heard of a sea lion up here. But I don't blame 'em. I choose to live here as opposed to the Bay Area.''


    eghem,,,,says volumes, and before anyone gets their ire up I used to live in the bay area,,so I have first hand knowledge

    California Sea Lions (Zalophus californianus) range from British Columbia Canada all the way down to Northern Baja Mexico. Seeing as how they get up to 1000 lbs. and they have a wide range with feeding grounds up and down the coast, it's really no surprise that they were seen off the coast of Santa Barbara.

    Dan Nelson, general manager of San Luis and Delta Mendota Water Authority in Los Banos, obviously doesn't surf or get out to the coast much. If he did, he'd seen plenty of Sea Lions with his own eyes.

    As for El Armpito,....er...I mean Los Banos, well, there really isn't much there to comment on, now is there?....
