Monterey Report
« on: July 12, 2014, 07:23:41 PM »
Went out out the Breakwater with Boogieboard Steve and Southernboy (Mississippi) to invite some fish home for dinner.

When we launched it was like a lake. Water temp was in the high 50's. We saw dolphin and mola mola on the way out.

First dive we hit great structure -- there was a school of blues over the anchor and lots of other species.

I shot a nice stringer of rock fish, cab and a smallish ling. Steve came in with a nice stringer of blues, including one monster. Mississippi came back with a nice stringer of cab and a beautiful opeleye. He lost his gun in a hole with a large cab and had to go back with his second tank.

On the second dive I got my ling and a 46" wolf eel, two nice greening (yummy) and more rockfish. Steve nailed more huge blues and got his lings and some cabs. Mississippi retrieved his gun and got a trophy cab and finished his ling limit (lingit?)

Fish tacos on Sunday!




There are no bad days at the beach.

Way to Slay Rick!!  Glad you guys had a great time.  Have to hook up sometime and do a tandem boat dive.

Wait not the breakwall MPA in monterey right?

I know Rick launches at Breakwater, not breakwall.  He hits multiple spots outside of the MPA's.  Boats launch from Breakwater, not fish.

Thanks all!

Just to clarify -- we put the boat in at Breakwater and only do sightseeing dives in the MPAs. I won't drop into an MPA if there is hunting gear on my boat.
