|Giant Sea Bass hunt|

Kevin, Merry and I trekked out in search of Giant Sea Bass for Dr. Milton's first annual GSB count. Merry saw the only one, a large adult. I dragged my wide angle setup around all day, wishing I had my macro lens.
We began the day on the Hermosa Beach Artificial Reef. GSBs and groupers have been spotted there recently, but not today. Even a huge baitball of mackerel didn't bring them in. At least the visibility was decent for a change. We had easily twenty-five feet.
We motored over to the edge of the kelp off Haggerty's for our next dive. I found a small polyclad worm, Eurylepta californica but couldn't get it with my large setup. Merry and Kevin handled the macro today. Visibility here was a cloudy fifteen feet. The only thing we saw of interest was a large diameter hose. I've seen them at the Olympic II wreck and the Redondo Artificial Reef.
