Can’t get enough of the STOLT

Enter_Rob

The Tuna Seazure left the dock promptly at 0645 today to get out to the STOLT DAGALI quickly in anticipation of the “parking lot” being crowded by the holiday weekend crowd.  Turns out there was no need to rush cause once we got a few miles out boats were few and far between.  Seas were 2 to 3 feet and were cruised at a good clip out to the STOLT.  When I hit the bottom at 125 fsw to tie in I was happy to find the good conditions from a few weeks ago had hung around.  Visibility on the bottom was a clear 30ish feet and dropped a little near the top of the wreck with all the plankton in the water.  Tons of hungry bergalls swarming the top of the wreck with one particularly persistent bastard who kept insisting on pecking my mask while I was wrapping the chain.  A few blackfish were mingling in the crowd and I thought for a second I was doing a reef dive with all the life around.

For dive 2 I was lucky to have Mr. Rob assist me with modeling and lighting efforts.  We did a tour of the wreck inside and out and got some nice results.  Kenny got a nice 2-3 lb lobster down in the debris field and we pulled hook as the winds and waves were starting to kick up.

Of note:  Miss Kendall Bedford made her first Jersey wreck dive today and had a great time.  You don’t see many 13 year old girls out on the boat… maybe she will be a sport and write up her first report…
