    I competed in the Copa Pacifica Ultimate Jiu Jitsu Death Match last week, so I sold my March 2nd tickets.

    However, the boat was canceled and I bought another ticket on tonight’s boat from someone who couldn’t make the makeup.

    Me, Dan, Bob, Jim P, Walt and a sixth diver… I can’t remember his name were on the boat.

    Anyway, apparently divers are catching lobsters shallow again, so Dan suggested that we try a shallower secret spot.

    I was the second overboard.

    It was colder than I thought; I later found out that the water was 53 degrees Fahrenheit at depth and 57 degrees Fahrenheit on the surface.

    I got an “ice cream headache” going down.

    I grabbed two shorts and kept looking.

    This place has many reefs and rocks and the kelp was pretty thick.

    Lots of surge…

    I kept almost running into reefs looking at the bottom for bugs.

    Thirty minutes of fighting the surge and kelp, I surfaced and headed for the boat.

    I crawled over a lot of kelp.

    I tried submerging and swimming underneath the kelp, but I kept getting caught.

    When I boarded, I had so much kelp caught on me that Captain Alec asked, “Do you have a license to harvest all that kelp?”

    Some other divers hauled up an anchor that they found.

    Dan and a few others caught one or two bugs.

    Bob came up empty handed, so I didn’t feel so bad.
