Thinking about hitting up Sonoma County on Sunday...any reports on what the viz looks like? Buddy is looking to get abs but I just want to shoot some fish. Thanks

I am always curious as to what the constantly changing vis is.  Hey Matt is there a way we could have a Sonoma coast Vis perma thread?

I would say that would fall under dive reports cause the only way ti know anymore is guys who have dove. just my thoughts
Divers go deeper, and stay down longer

Attaboy, Matt...you're doing us a nice service.

But I think you should spend more days out there on the coast and dive multiple spots up and down it in order that we have a clearer idea of the water clarity.

Especially considerate of you would be reports from the latter days of the work week so the rest of us can plan our weekends better.

Vis was pretty good today north of Ocean cove.  I would say it was 10-15'  with a small NW swell and a light breeze from the south.  There were alot of fish out probably due to the small swell.  Good luck

Had 10 to 12 ft. vis at Sea Ranch today, Mothers' Day.

Not much swell, but a southerly wind had it white-capping pretty well in the morning. Water temp was 51°.
