On Sunday there was guy fishing from rocky perch right over the kelp bed, casting into the choppy waters below. The Kelp greenling I found was not his doing, but the many lost lures tangled on the kelp along with strung out descarted fishing lines attest that he is not alone who is trying to catch fish in that kind of environment... :(
Catching fish,invertebrates and even occasional diver with a camera is always rewarding ...
Thanks Lynne, Eric. Memorial Day weekend was favorable for diving, even if little bit early in the day and rather gray and gloomy above. On Sunday only two divers, but today it was different story. Lots of divers, few came armed with spearguns to get their Lingcod, more of us were shooting with cameras
I enjoy your wit with the beer bottle.For these specialty ales, Rogue Brewery donates a portion of its proceeds to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. In addition to the Wasted Sea Star, they have had several critter watcher favorites: Wolf Eel Ale, Spiney Lumpsucker Ale, Sea Otter Ale, Whale Ale (in honor of Keiko), and Shark's Tooth Ale. For wreck divers it has Sunken Vessale. Their Newport Brewery is nestled among the aquarium, Hatfield Marine Science Center, and NOAA's West Coast headquarters. At times it shares a parking lot with a dive shop (They seem to come and go.). It's a favorite stop while coastal whale watching. -Curt
