Here's something to think of. The thrill of the hunt.
It is all incredibly lush and beautiful to see, but I wasn't
finding any bug. I went into some of the channels, but as
mentioned, they were mostly smooth sided or there might be a shallow
crack that appeared as a big black line because it was filled with
red urchins. As I went across one, I got a visual of a large bug
walking out in the open. While the visibility is fine, perhaps 50
feet, it is still early and the light is very dim. When I looked
down into the channel, I could see something, but couldn't make
out what. It had been my periferal vision that had been able to
recognize the lobster. It didn't matter. I was heading straight
down and hit it with both hands. It was between 3 and 4 pounds and
a very nice bug. I was out of air pretty soon after and went back
to the boat. I had gone south from the boat. The divers that had
gone to the west had found better terrain with rock piles and more
