Sonoma coast dive on Sunday
« on: July 16, 2018, 09:24:02 AM »
Short and sweet,

Received a phone call Saturday from a long time friend and dive buddy and NCUH member Greg Gibson who had moved out of the and was back in town and looking to get a dive in. So as any good friend would I drooped what plans I had and took Greg out. On a side note you may recognize Greg if you watch the show Battle Bots he is the driver and creator of YETI the most bad ass bot on the show.  Any who back tot he dive. We headed up and launched from Ocean cove to flat as heck seas no wind over cast skies.  We motored up to the desired dive site and were treated to a stellar 5ft vis yahoo and a tone surge when the long period south swell would roll in.  We dived for about 4 hrs with both of us scoring on some fish. I manged to find a free swimming ling in 17ft water that I landed that went 36.5 inched and 20 pounds as well as a smaller ling in the 10 pound class. I closed out the day with a handful of rock fish as well and also added 2 more fish I needed towards my Norcal 9 species comp. Greg had a great time and went home with a stringer full of assorted rock fish. In all a great day on lake pacific and with a good friend.
