We were finally able to make it across again. I had a new pair of Speardiver C90 fins that I have been dying to try out. We had 2 trips blown off by a TS and Irene, but the wx and work schedules finally came together and were able to make it across.
Cleared saturday, picked up a driver and hit the water. The viz was pretty bad and resulted in tough sledding. there was still a pretty good ground swell breaking on the outter reefsf. After several hours in the water, I didn't even see even a borderline hogfish. There were plenty of muttons, and the low viz made them less weary. Passed on a bunch of shots that werem't clear cut scoop and scores for fear of maimed fish and lost gear. Ended up w/ more turtle than fish footage, but had a good time anyway. After a good meal at Etta Janes and some drinks at Josey Wale's, sleep cam easy.
Day two was more productive. Hit some spots north side or Matanilla on the way home and did ok. No trophies, but a welcome relief after day 1.
Had a great time and enjoyed the C90's. I was very impressed w/ how well they did swimming up current or when I needed to de-de after a fish.
