Scuba fever - keep the videos coming! My dive crew and I (a bunch of middle age dudes with dad bods and kids who are getting into diving) watch all of your videos and love them.

We all live in San Clemente and primarily dive 3-arch/thousand steps/ocean institute.

We had a great opening day. I snagged 4, my buddy got 3, another for 2, and the two newest guys didnít get any but are highly motivated.

I did alright on lobster opener. Saw a handful of people diving the same spot I was. I know a couple of them got skunked out. Felt like this lobster opener was a little rougher then normal swell wise.

Re: Opening Day Lobster Season 2019 - 2020

I dove the 6am to 730am opener in North OC. Did well. Super rough with south swell. No one out but surfers. Vis was good past 20ft. Got 4.
Dove Los Angeles County with 1-4ft vis on Monday got 4 hefty males to 4lbs, no one out then Either. Windy rough murky cold uncrowded, just how I like it.

Re: Opening Day Lobster Season 2019 - 2020

Also dove OC. Dove hard for nearly 5 hours to pull my limit, swell was making it difficult however vis was still ~20 ft. Saw 3 groups of divers in the same spot, think they each got a couple. Then a scuba boat pulled up to the spot and dropped in 10+ divers next to me...

Re: Opening Day Lobster Season 2019 - 2020

Cool video as always scubafever. Liked to see the clip of some grab carnage on the bull ring
Opening night we saw more boats than bugs but still able to scratch four for myself and bud got six. No complaints, good times to be had

Dive safe, cheers
