    Instructor John and (Newly Certified) Instructor Ron and I took the faithful zodiac out tonight to liberate more lobsters.

    We were going to try a deep spot and then, maybe shallower.

    Hoop netters were already at one of our secret spots along the edge of the canyon – hoop netting in the exact location.

    We decided to try Palos Verdes.

    On the way over, we also noticed another hoop netter on the Palawan wreck; are the lobsters deep?

    We anchored in 50 feet of water; I was the first to submerge.

    Lobsters littered the floor – actually I should state that micro-lobsters littered the floor.

    I grabbed and pinned what I thought was a legal bug, but upon measuring it, it was a half inch short; I released it unharmed.

    Vis was good at the bottom; sort of murky at the top.

    There was a lot of interesting reef structure, ling cod and various other sea life; but, unfortunately no legal bugs.

    I was the first one back to the boat; John followed with one legal lobster.

    Ron displays his prize from this dive.

    Instructor Ron followed with one legal bug.

    We moved the boat further North for the second dive of the night.
