I was wading early on an outgoing tide to see if I could position near a channel 200 yds from shore. Since the tide was dropping I knew I could push the limits (not true on the flood) and I was close to the label on my waders. Suddenly a bull gray seal of approx 700 or more pounds decides he has me at an advantage.
He decides to play chicken with me - charging at full force such that a pressure wave of water is rising over it's brow with it's black as death eyes staring at me coming in a charge and turning to the side at the last minute!
I never moved so quickly chest deep in water in my life, deciding I could wait for low tide and almost needing a change of waders.
