No telling what shuffling of creatures has happened during and since the recent flood. Wouldn't it be cool to actually see a wild seal in Texas, although they are a challenge to fish around. I've fished around Grey Seals in the northeast. They are worse than dolphin for scaring fish and notorious for stealing hooked fish.
It's great to see so much variety and resurgent types of animals and birds out on the water here in Texas. Magnificent Frigate birds, Osprey, Brown Pelicans, Otters, Sea Turtles, none of those were around in any numbers 30 years ago. I like seeing all the sea turtles poking their heads up to take a look when I fish. Osprey always impress me with their plunges from the sky to nab a fish. Maybe there is some remote islet where the Caribbean Monk seal still hangs on and that remnant population could be nurtured and again populate Texas waters. That's one of the best things about fishing, just soaking in the all the great variety of life out there.
