Thursday Night Crew hits Lumpy Night at Redondo

Post by Gdog » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:06 pm

Been a long while since I posted a trip report, and this is as good a time as any to jump back in. The ThThTh bunch hit Redondo for a night of lumpy hunting, and for the most part were very successful. 14 different lumpies were found at scattered locations at Redondo, in addition to the usual octos, sculpins, and stubby squid. We of course followed up with a highly successful second dive at Billy Mchales, where the tales were tall, and there was much embellishment all around. My dive buddy, Tall Mike, and I found 7 of those lumpies. Here are a few of my shots.

This stubby was very patient with me, staying this color for a few shots before turning red on me

Great time was had. Thank you Tall Mike for being my dive buddy!
