Your worst day of fishing pales in comparison to this.
Being a big sea fisherman isn’t an easy task. Inclement weather, equipment failure, and dwindling fish stocks all can bring misery to a day on the water—ultimately hitting you hardest in the wallet. One thing that is lost on us ‘city folk’ are some of the ‘live’ obstacles these fisherman face on a daily basis. In this case, the sea lion.
As you’re about to see in this eye-opening video, hundreds of hungry sea lions converge on this fishing boat, ruthlessly stealing the coveted fish straight from the nets. It’s literally all-out feeding frenzy and there’s not a whole lot these fishermen can do.
Listen to the narrative. That’s despair at its best.
Definitely have to feel for these guys, as this is their livelihood and means of income. But as you saw, there’s little to nothing that can be done when these uninvited guests show up.
Remember this video the next time you have a tough day on the water. It definitely could be far worse.
