After finding four giant sea bass on the Landing Craft last week we couldn't wait to try again with a wide angle setup. We went out after work on Tuesday, but the strong winds and ripping current made us turn around once we got there. On Saturday the wind and swells kept us on land. We had a memorial service to go to today, so we snuck in a quick dive this morning before the wind came up. No GSBs were spotted but the dive was interesting.
We dropped into dirty water and were greeted at 23 feet by a thermocline that dropped the temperature from 71F at the surface to 53F rather quickly. My lips were numb for the next 61 minutes. Visibility was poor for the first half of the dive, but as high tide arrived we suddenly could see thirty feet vertically and about fifteen feet horizontally.
Fish and crabs kept us busy while we waited for the GSBs that never came. At one point the fish made a beeline for us. I though for sure we were going to see some big fish now. Unfortunately, it was just a free diver scaring the fish away.
