    Re: finally got a dive in

    Got out for another dive on Sunday.
    millpond all day.
    dived off moreton and saw lots and lots of stuff.. got hassled by a large bronzie, saw grey nurses ( at the clowns that believe they are endangered) large rays,
    Got a call from the boat 'hey guys some whales are coming... before I could turn the camera on this mother and calf were under us and were in their turbulence awesome...
    saw lots of king's.. caught a modest one of around 15+kg or so
    couple of crays
    again saw 2 large Spanish which remained out of range...
    vis was awesome.. 20m almost everywhere

    Awesome stuff Kokomo. Whats the diving like at Shag and Boat rock? You seem to know the area.

    Re: finally got a dive in

    spent heaps of time around shag rock and 'the group' generally i fish there when the weather is not perfect as my round trip run from manly is 80miles round the cape or only 40 in much more sheltered to stradi..

    stradi is great.. have seen almost every fish species there, snapper king's cobia mackrel wahoo dolphinfish tuna parrot trout etc etc...

    as a generaly rule.. you dont see nothing unless you put your head under and those locations are very very popular dive sites because they are close and have such a diverse amount of fish life on them.

    Latley i have been trying to get away from the well worn tracks and trying to find new ground in deeper water's... its hard to get dive buddies that can dive deep enough and enjoy the challenge though

    Re: finally got a dive in
