Finally getting back to making a post on here, went out to Catalina on Sunday with Rick with our CCRs and decided to also bring the camera for the first time. Dry suit, ccr and camera was a bit of learning curve… still plenty to work on.
Highlight of the trip was definitely the Giant Black Sea Bass encounters! Saw quite a few individual sightings and swim bys; but also a group of six or seven and also a few close up encounters. I was a bit sad to see one of the calmer GBS had a rope hanging out of his gills, I briefly thought of trying to remote it or at least cut it down but my trim/buoyancy with the drysuit + ccr isn’t quite there yet.
