Catalina Giant Sea Bass - 2013 : I had one of the best California dives I’ve had in years with skipper Kyaa Heller, Bonnie Pelnar, Michael Bonneau, Rhonda Allen, Vijay Ramen, and Tom Dietz aboard the Sundiver II.  I went off by myself and sat on the bottom with 5 giant sea bass for 45 minutes.  Two small sea bass (about 40 and 80 pounders) hung just off the bottom in the shade of one particular kelp plant, while I photographed them from a couple of feet away.  Three others, from about 100 to 200 pounds, circled around us.  I floated into the shade under the kelp plant, displacing one fish, to see what he would do.  He gaped at me and floated off a couple of feet away.  The 80 pounder moved back into the shade above me, hanging about a foot above my tank;  I wished for the rest of the group to be there to experience this.  I floated out of position under the kelp plant, and the 40 pounder moved back into the shade.  I saw all kinds of other behaviors, including what looked like courtship between the two larger sea bass.  A huge barracuda school circled my bubbles near the surface, but giant sea bass a foot away trump barracuda.

When the Nitrox in my steel 130 tank got low, I swam off to find my friends to coax them into staying for the next dive; I could take them to see the giant sea bass.  Kyaa moved the boat to the spot I’d located, and everyone else aboard had fun with giant sea bass for dive number two.

I came back a week later to find foggy conditions underwater, but there are still beautiful shots to be taken in the fog.
