Feb 4, pumps out 2 Avalon wreck dives on DiverCity. Vis and temps were sweet for the winter month. Big fish all over, sand bass, lingcod! Dives were in lower 70s depth range, for 35 mins each dive with temps lower 50s, viz 15+. Found another hoop net bringing the total to 5 in the last 5 dives. Hardcore divers: Jim, Jeff, Paul, Brian, and one other guy.
Feb 19, Night dive shot in the dark at Malibu Big Rock shore dive, having never been there and not much research on the location of the reefs, we just assumed it’d be in line with the point, went out to 30ft and then headed west to cross the point line. Never found nothing but sand, and more sand. Not much to see, an occasional baby lingcod, hundreds of baby halibut, coming back in we spent time in the 10ft depths around Big Rock seen bunch of short bugs, and one huge rock fish.
Diver: Ed, Jeff and Brian.
Feb 22, 23,aboard DiverCity Honeymoom Cove Reefs get some fishing pressure by the sure-shots.
22nd was Jim, Brian with only some bugs, an old weight pouch.
23rd was Jim, Trevor (Scuba Chef, who’s new column is in California Diving News,) Tony of Dive N Surf, and Brad! Only a lingcod, and sand bass made it to the sacks. Wind picked up and DiverCity headed back! Viz was close to 10 feet!
