Winds: (Saturday) 2-5 Variable
Seas: (Saturday) 2-3 inside the reef, 2-3 outside the reef
Surf Temp: +/- 84 F
Viz: 25-30 feet
Unfortunately, due to some mechanical difficulties, we were only able to dive Saturday morning, but the morning was very nice. High tide was at about 10:30am, and we were about an hour early. We fought the incoming tide for about 30 minutes before it started to slacken up. After that we got a good 45 minutes of slack tide, where we were really able to make up some ground. We moved along quickly, as we have noticed that the fish seem to get a little scarce once the tide actually switches. We're seeing a lot more grouper this year, which is very encouraging. It really makes the increase to 24" in the size limit (about 2-3 years ago) worthwhile. We shot 3 gags and a black, and saw a whole bunch more that just didn't feel like cooperating :)..
