Near shore conditions being what they were, we went to Catalina instead. Or darn!! Ship Rock and Eagle Reef. Flat, calm, kinda clear, no sun. I spent my time trying out my new PolarPro Magenta Fiter for the GoPro. It color corrects for green water. I purchased this. I give it a thumbs up. But, the design needs some work. The retainer tab broke off after ONE dive. And, I lost it. In no surge, or current. :-( Secondly, I was surprised to see all the abalone. They seemed to be hungry, and I'm a sucker for a hungry abalone. So I fed them their favorite dish, kelp. If you try this, be sure to offer it up at the correct end of the shell. Or else the take offense. You don't want a pissed off abalone. Various abalone prefer different types of kelp. Look around and pick the cleanest and tenderest bit of kelp you see in their neighborhood. Gently offer it at the pointy end of their shell. If they're hungry they make a fast and furious lunge towards it. Well a snail version of fast and furious.
