1/8/2019- Sea Update
Ted here for Out to Sea,
Not much happening on the bay today. Sea conditions are looking sloppy for the next 48 hours with small craft and gale force warnings in effect until late tonight. Water temp is sitting around 58.
Crabbing has been very slow to slow at best. Crab and dab season is definitely dragging on slowly but surely. Be sure to stop by the shop here in the next coming months leading up to salmon opener. Got all the gear and bait you will ever need.
Only a few whales have been spotted in the bay with the annual Gray Whale migration peaking next week. Couple pairs of humpbacks hanging around over the winter, and the risso’s dolphins are still being seen off Point Pinos and Lovers Point.
Diving conditions have been solid through this storm for the hardy divers out there on the peninsula. The southern breeze accompanied with this storm is keeping the swell at bay. Slight amount of surge on the surface and in shallower water. Visibility is sitting around 25-35ft all over the peninsula. Reports of large congregations of male sheepshead off Aquarium Reef and around the Macabee Pinnacle. Beautiful opportunity to photograph a species not commonly found in our bay.
Tight lines and stay safe
