I got out this weekend and did two dives at Emerald Bay/Indian Rock. On the first dive I caught sight of an octopus tenacle retracting into a hole just a few feet from the bottom of the line. We watched his two eyes watching us for a few minutes and moved over about 10' where we saw two California Scorpion fish. The larger of the two was perfectly blended with the rocks he was hiding in, but the shape of that face somehow gives him away. I would be remiss not to mention the Garabaldi, the juvies, the senioritas, and sheephead, the blue-banded and black-eyed gobies that were everywhere I was all the time, but I'd hate to take them for granted. There were also a couple of 18" + Kelp Bass lurking about. I also found a few rock scallops (rare here) one was almost big enough to eat (it's still there), and the other was quite small and wedged back in a crack. The vis ranged from 20'- 30' and below 30' it got pretty cold...on the outside of my drysuit, that is.
