Margaret Webb and Jim Lyle dived the Topaz Pilings this morning and reported that a sheep crab had become entangled in the line. We were planning to make a night dive there tonight, but decided to go over this afternoon and look for the crab. Fortunately it wasn't had to find. It was on the first piling we saw, so we cut it free and re-tied the line.
Visibility was down about five feet from Monday, so I didn't get many photos. There was a reported"hundreds of squid" there on Wednesday night, but we only found a couple small pockets of eggs and no squid. Maybe we'll get lucky on the next full moon and have a real squid run this year.

Channeled Topsnail, Calliostoma canaliculatum

The eggs are cooling
