Sometimes I feel like a few fishermen I've known. I keep hitting the same spots until I take everything I can find, then move on to another site. After the great visibility we had last weekend at the Topaz pilings I was looking forward to looking for more critters in the edge of Redondo Canyon.
Fog kept us on dry land until noon today. When it finally showed signs of clearing, we rushed over to the site. Visibility was down to eight feet with some surge. I never even found a single piling. I dropped into the canyon and found the usual suspects. I did get to see some behavior I usually miss including a Sarcastic fringehead eating a dead octopus and a one inch Scrippsia pacifica pulsating along the detritus on the bottom. I even found my first Purple-striped jelly of the year, or at least a large portion of one.
I think I'll look elsewhere for awhile. I miss my nudibranchs.
