Re: Lumpsucker on Fox Island East Wall

Jealous of your pictures. Every one of my lumpsucker encounters involve uncooperative fish in murky and partially obscured locations.

How do you get them to pose and face the camera so nicely? Are there special lumpsucker treats I'm not aware of? :-)

Re: Pinto Abalone Status Review

I had a conflict and wasn't able to attend this meeting but curious if others did and there are any updates since then? On the subject of pintos: if you have yet to find one in the wild (like me) point defiance has one in the touch tank of their fancy new aquarium. How often do you get the opportuni...

Re: Happy Nudi New Years

Underwater slugs are super cool. Those boring non-divers dont know what they are missing. King crabs and Jan K are cool too and are always fun sightings on any local dive. I've heard Jan K is listed somewhere in the marine mammals section of several underwater identification books. This unique and h...

Re: Sixgill sightings: database?

Update: More info if interested... I played with the reef.org data some more and warm water temperatures (especially 54F+) and depth (>80ft) both correlate strongly with sixgill sighting frequencies. Perhaps the seasonality seen in the graph above might simply be a reflection of this pattern: they c...

Re: Sixgill sightings: database?

I suspect there are already several sighting databases we could leverage. I checked the reef.org da...

We were at the west side of the second rock structure - I assume this is the start of what you call the "deep" reef?

Still haven't heard any word from anyone so don't think it has been found. If anyone does find it would be great if they could retrieve the dive flag I left (both so others know it was found and so I can get it back ). I cross referenced my dive computer, my best guess of the currents at the time, a...

If you know someone with a last minute boat in the area (thus avoiding the misery of packing gear to the site) I might be able to dive Wednesday. Good chance I'd have a third person too.
