    Cool South of Shipping Channel 4-29

    OK, so had to run out at 12-15 Knts for a few hours to get to spots N-NW Seas 2'+ at times, calmed a little during day, wind picked up in afternoon but coming back, was surfing the waves some, so OK.

    110" vis 40 ft or better, big Mangos absent, nada. Big Hogs, present, 100 ft vis 20' to 30' 20# gag just waiting until June 1st for me to come back. 90m ft 55 ft 30-40 ft

    Temp ~ 70

    Great Day - Bullies were harassing us when we came up in to 60 ft depths. Couldn't figure out if they wanted our fish or it was mating season and wanted us to stay away from their girls.

    We noticed the same thing with regards to the mangos - very odd. Lots of sharks, mostly sand bars and nurses. Very few shootable mangos, some decent hogs. TONS TONS TONS of big gags on every dive, acting like reds just coming up to us for a tickle.

    Conditions heading out SUCKED - 2 foot my ass. We hit 3-4 footers, short period, with a few 5 footers thrown in.

    Did you mean at 90' and 55' you had 30-40' of vis?

    but yes, vis not as good at 100 ft but from 90 on in, vis was excellent. Started seeing bottom at 55" after dropping a little. At 55, no silt, so gumbo, no big mango's, no fish but found some slippers.
