For the first time in a very long time we actauly had very clear water at this spot,easily 10 to 15 metres vis when normally we would find at the best 5 or 6 metres here.

The water just a little off shore was absolutely purple and we had a little of that come in close.

The reports put the more northen areas already invaded by the jumping pin bar dirty water that comes from prolonged exposure to winds from the north directions pushing it all the way along the coast.

As we got close to this spot you could see the dirty water line only hundreds of metres north from this spot,we beat it by one day, Laughing

The temp was a least 26c and a very sunny top day with smooth seas.


A top day out for every one here.

One the female free divers there with us all showing that even without fins on she is easy as good as us and looks far better of course.
She didnt chase any fish as she is a trained scuba diver and was just enjoying the clear water with all of us,with no fins??? Laughing

I wish that area was that packed with good fish the times i've been there :<

Have you seen any of those black tangs like you caught up the coast since? I'm planning on doing a five or six foot tank and joining it with my current system, and i'd trade you just about anything if you caught me one of those Very Happy

Will trade fabrication work for one of those black tangs and a local purple tang Very Happy I love you That does include mild steel or stainless steel tank stands or hoods.

I was planning on going but then i had some other stuff come up unfortunately. It looked like an unreal day out.

So you were seeing those black with orange tail tangs down there then? Damn, you just had to tell me now didn't you Laughing.

Could you get me one next time you go out and i'll find a way to repay you Very Happy
