Tim and I went to Redondo on Sun...right when High tide started to fall...
Vis was 20 ft at most...
Lots of critters as usual, if you took the slow down to see 'em! :supz:

Hmmm... don't remember. We went to the tire piles at around 90fsw then over to the boat. Found the first Ling on eggs that I've seen at TTN this year, along with a bunch more that seem to be sitting around posing for pictures that might soon be on eggs.

And thanks Dusty!

Dude - That's what you get for wussin' out on us! :smt064

Titlow, 8-10' viz in the shallows because of current and wind driven waves (it was JUMPIN' out there!), but it opened up to 15' or so. Fantastic 85 minute dive! :supz:

yes I think it helps for the loss of red color at depth. Here's where I got it from:
http://cgi.ebay.com/37mm-Polarized-Came ... otohosting

It's not a 'red' looking filter, but more of the 'magenta' you refer to.
I think FL means 'fluorescent' filter, mostly used when imaging indoors with fluorescent lights, but it seems to work ok underwater too.... :bounce:


thanks for the link. yeah, adding magenta offsets the pervasive green in our waters. if you ever white balance a digital camera at 60', then look at it topside, the image is saturated with magenta.

(I'm using a FL filter on the camera, maybe that has to do with the color?)
