Out of Homosassa Saturday 8-25-18

Shawn and Amie Jeffords joined Barb and I for a dive outing today. We had intended to get out to 50' to 60' feet but it was a little bumpy so we stopped a bit shallower on some reefs I have been wanting to check out. Water temps were 89 top to bottom, visibility was +/- 20'. Pretty good current today. Bait everywhere with lots of small spanish chasing them. We hit two reefs about a half mile apart and found gags, mangos, and hogfish on both. We end up with 7 gags, 6 nice mangos, and one hogfish. Gags ranged from 25" to 34" with three being over 32". Largest mango was 5.0 lbs.

Nice! That's one pretty reef. I've rarely seen that much color on one.

My wife's camera has a good strobe setup that brings out the natural colors. The camera also "sees" much more than the human eye.

Your day is coming soon Grey, looking at my calendar now to plan dive trips for the rest of the warm weather. Maybe into early Nov.

I know I owe you a trip and a ride on a cat boat.
