Hoodies on the Hood

Post by Greg Jensen » Sun Dec 01, 2019 9:57 pm

Jones'n for some hooded nudies but don't have the time and/or $$$ to go to God's Pocket?

Head over to Twanoh State Park and go in to the left of the docks- there are hundreds of them in the eelgrass (just 10' at high tide). Also huge numbers of white lined dironas (big too), lots of Hermissenda. And vis shallow is crystal clear.

Twanoh usually doesn't have much to recommend, but right now it's pretty dang good. And keep an eye out for my wife's weight pocket.

Wow! Dove this site several years ago, and it was terrible - all rubble, sand, and 4 ‘Twinkie’ nudis. Good to know there’s more life there now and specifically, hooded nudis! :joshsmith:

Cool! Would that be to the left of the boat launch docks to the west? Or the dock to the east?

Sorry, forgot about the other dock. Go to the left of the boat launch.

The other interesting thing there yesterday were the huge numbers of small moon snails. I almost never see live juvenile moon snails, just big ones- but there were lots of golf ball sized ones cruising around.

Be sure to go when the tide is fairly high- they''re on the smaller, non-native eelgrass (Zostera japonica) so shallower than the usual eelgrass beds.
