What happened to the epic viz there?

Keystone on Saturday afternoon, 9/29. Nice 20+ viz at the Jetty and maybe closing in on 30 at the pilings. Hard to tell though with the massive schools of fish EVERYWHERE!

Saltwater State Park was a good 30 ft this morning. It was my first visit there, and being able to see the structure clearly was pretty nice! Vis dropped a little on the 2nd dive at low tide but was still an solid 20+.
