Anchor bay in Mendo had 25'-5' depending on where and in what currents you were.

Gerstle Cove today I could see the bottom in about 25' water sometimes. Careful though, swell and chop picked up around 1100/1115.

Sonoma County was a hazy 20', no swell, and a little wind that put a small chop on the water.   There was no place on the Sonoma coast that wasn't divible this morning.

Sea Ranch, Sunday, June 24. The vis was only 4 to 5 feet. Sort of looked like a bloom to me, coming off the rapidly growing bull kelp. The water temp was 51-53 degrees.

Hardly any wind, not much swell (occasionally a bigger set would roll through). Fun anyhow. The fish weren't out and about, but at least they were in their holes where my flashlight could find them. It was one of those days that you just follow your float line down till you almost bump into the bottom.

With the bull kelp coming back, I clipped off to it instead of having to drop anchor.

Sea Ranch, Friday, June 29.

The bloom's gone. Had as much as 15ft of vis. The ocean was especially flat. Water temp was 51°.

Best day of the year (for me) so far.
