Hi Guys,
The wife and I had a good dive at Haggerty's this morning. There was some surge and vis ranged from 5-15' with most of the dive averaging 10 foot or so. It was odd in that it was clear in shallow and started to get murky out past the first stand of kelp. We went out to where the bottom starts to transition from rocks to sand and swam west. It's about 30' deep at this point. The first big fish we found was a 4 ft angel shark buried in the sand. The second big fish was a 30" halibut that I found sitting on top of the sand. The horn sharks were mysteriously absent...

Haggerty's is a short hill but it's one of the most technical hills around requiring that you get on all fours at times. It looks scarier than it really is.
