Doing my part for social distancing, I made a solo dive at Spongehenge this morning. I stuck Merry's GoPro in the sand under the Rodeo Bar and moved away so the Giant Sea Bass could do their thing in privacy. I peeked in on them a few times to make sure they hadn't eaten the camera.

Visibility was a respectable fifteen feet for the first half hour, but deteriorated to five feet during the last half of the dive. Only three fish showed up today. We've noticed that the big ones tend to stay away when conditions are bad.

I had a strobe battery die, so please excuse the backscatter in the photos. I had to move my left strobe in closer to get enough light on the fish in the dirty water.
