    Operation Lobster Liberation In Palos Verdes, Part I

    There were storms in Southern California earlier in the week; I think they at least put all the forest fires out.

    The weather has calmed down a bit, so the Divevets’ Island Diver charter went back out to our “secret lobster farm.”

    The boat left with the Captain, Rolando the beer concierge, and eight divers – Dan, Mean Bob, Richard The Brit, Mike C., Reverend Al, Hollywood, Donna the Hot Biker Chick and Me; two chicks on the boat is a rarity.

    Logged Dive #355
    Palos Verdes, CA

    Secret Location: 32 35 30 20 79 61 72 64 73 20 53 6f 75 74 68 20 6f 66 20 6f 75 72 20 6c 61 73 74 20 6c 6f 63 61 74 69 6f 6e 2c 20 77 68 65 72 65 20 6e 6f 20 62 6f 61 74 73 20 77 65 72 65 20 73 65 65 6e 20 6f 6e 20 6f 70 65 6e 69 6e 67 20 6e 69 67 68 74 2e

    Solo Diving/SoCal Buddy Diving

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 300 psi
    Max depth: 45 feet
    Waves: Sort of choppy
    Visibility: 10 feet or worse
    Water Temperature: About 60 degrees
    Total Bottom Time: About 45 minutes

    I was the first one over board; the boat anchored in 40 feet of water, so I decided to do my lucrative voyage to 25 feet where I caught six lobster last time.

    I saw a few shorts and grabbed one legal lobster in about 30 feet; the vis was really crappy, maybe 10 feet at best.

    I missed the pin on a big bug, which pissed me off, as I really didn’t see too many lobsters to begin with.

    I navigated back and surfaced with 300 psi; I looked South and then East and then North, but didn’t see the boat.

    Where the hell is the boat?

    I turned West, and the boat was about 20 feet away; I was first back with one bug and a grim report.

    The other divers slowly made their way back – some got skunked, some came back with one or two.

    Hollywood and Mike C. scored with four bugs.

    Hollywood and Mike C. scored with four bugs; all caught in 50 feet of water.

    We analyzed our dive; I spent too much time shallow, the storm earlier in the week has pushed them deeper.

    We moved the boat to a deeper spot.
