These birds, which can easily weigh more than 20 pounds, were so common in Alaska that, from 1917 until 1952, there was a bounty on them. Hunters were paid as much as $2 per pair for talons.

And since they can dive to 600 feet and stay down for more than 20 minutes, you might be wasting your time hoping one pops back up. Harbor seals grow to about 180 pounds.
