Keystone today was a very decent 15-20 feet today. The wind was picking up, but it was blowing away from the beach. The exchange was mild, but the currents were more than a bit swirly and squirrelly. Could only go to about 50' and half way down the jetty before the pull got too strong for comfort.

Redondo on Thursday was 5' to 20'.

Lots of run off, the river is raging, tons of silt in the water. The deeper you go the better, viz wise, to a point.

Need this rain to go away!

Had great vis at EUP tonight (11/9). Probably 20' plus, limited mostly by the reach of our lights. Lots of shrimp everywhere we went.

Had really good vis at Redondo Saturday evening ... easily 25-30 feet. Lots of life out right now ... bay pipefish, gunnels, octos, and all the other things we often see there. It's getting time to start lumpie hunting in the shallows ... last year was a bit of a bust, so I'm hoping for better luck this year. Some of the critters I found on Saturday ...

Today at Pulali point and Dabob pinnacle was 30-50ft of beautiful viz! Top 15ft is a murky freshwater lens, but lots of light penetrating down deep.
