The Venture 3 from Belmar went out today with 5 divers and 2 no-shows. Hey guys, when you say you're coming and you don't, we don't have the opportunity to get another diver to take your place and the Captain looses out on his fare. Be a little more considerate.
We visited three rock piles that produced well. Both flounder and fluke were taken, along with some nice lobsters.
Although on their 2 week out-of-season respite, the Sea bass were plentiful and plenty large.
Seas were snotty but bearable with a 3-4 foot swell rolling through most of the day. The water was not too clear, maybe 10 feet of vis and a tad dark on the bottom. Bottom temp was 50, surface temp 63, with a noticeable thermocline around 45-50 feet.
For the second week in a row, I saw a Sea Raven swimming about on one of the reefs; I can't remember seeing them at anytime in the past few years. Ugly little bugers......
