Went out yesterday to the same spot as John Moorcroft talks about in his latest article. Viz was not great this time but there were a few fish about. Ended up with 4 bass upto 4lb. Not at all bad on the BBQ, half an hour after getting out!!:p

Hey - nice bass !

Shot from the surface or aspetto ? Just curious.

All fish shot during aspetto, The viz was pants at about 2.5-3m but there was quite a lot of bass activity once the current picked up. Fish would come around after about 40 secs on bottom and none of the dives were over 1.20 sec. Max depth at this site is 8-9m and all the bass came from a high point on the reef at about 5m. Just hope they stay around for a few more weeks :p

Nice mask by the way ! Looks like a Superocchio if I'm not mistaken ?!
Similar;) omer abyss exclusive, but same shape!!!
think I must have just got to carried away and forgot to equalise the mask!!!
Have u tried a mirrored mask?? makes all the difference up here but does make things a bit darker.
Would like to try one but the murk has been bad recently - have to try some clear spots I know (and secret ! hopefully stay that way too ...)

Thinking about one - but as the days draw in I am more tempted by a torch !
