Sea lions here have stealing fish off the hook down to a science. If it is bait like a sardine they will bite it off just behind the head. If it is a yellowtail (no not your right coast yellowtail) , bonito etc they will grab it and try to rip it off the hook.

Every once in a while I hear about someone hooking a dolphin. Seems to happen trolling for YFT on the "porpoise" schools. Around here they are usually common dolphin. Hook one and there is NO stopping it.
