    Logged Dive #56 at Long Point

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving

    I got to Long Point about 8:30 AM; No other divers were around.

    Cardiac Hill “killed” Nick last week. He’s still sore.

    I went in around 9:30 AM; I did the one fin on entry. It worked perfectly. I had my spear with me.

    The visibility was absolutely spectacular, maybe up to 30 feet.

    I swam to the rocky point just outside of Pigeon shit cave, not the Point.

    I was so awed by the scenery that I didn’t hunt until I had about 2000 psi.

    I saw some really big sheephead, some males. Those fish are so stupid, and these were really big. I was scared to shoot them — they looked really big.

    I got down to 1200 psi and thought, “I really need to catch something.”

    I speared a sheephead and ripped part of its back off; it escaped. I felt sorry for the creature.

    I went looking for the bigger fish and saw one of those shovelnosed guitar fishes. It scared the shit out of me because they look really big underwater and similar to a shark, but it swam by with no problem.

    I eventually speared a 12 inch sheephead with only 800 psi left. I started to swim back, but saw more. I chased after them, but at 300 psi, I had to surface. I was about 100 yards North of Pigeon Shit Cave, totally off track.

    I swam back to the cove and made an easy exit.

    When coming up with my fish, a chick who was standing on the beach with her dike girlfriend said, “look at him, how macho. I bet that fish didn’t have a chance.”

    Oh well, especially not in my frying pan.

    Maximum depth: 30 feet
    Waves: 3 feet and calm
