Skyline 1/20/20 Nastiest Crabs Edition

Post by Sharkb8 » Thu Jan 23, 2020 8:24 am

This winter the overlords of the tides have blessed us with perfect weekend Skyline currents for a few months. Unfortunately the weather has been a bit more uncooperative but we were able to go for a dive on Sunday. The vis was maybe 10 ft, the cucumbers were not out feeding and it was absolutely freezing underwater after the cold snap. However, the drift to slack to drift back was absolutely perfect and the nastiest of the nasty crabs were out putting on a show. Unfortunately compact cameras with a flood only video light, cold hands in wet gloves and bad vis make for poor phototaking days for some of us, but it was still fun.

Ol' Mossback was out and about. This was the second time in a row we've seen him! So dirty and nasty....

Every tramp still needs a lady. This prettier one was nearby. I'm fairly certain we saw both of them snuggling last visit.

Of course it wouldn't be a Skyline dive without a candy hunt. Cara payed me back for our last dive by scaring the only candy stripe shrimp found into a hole, so I never got to see it :angry:
