|Jo, Jim and myself together with the BAUE group had a great dive at Ed Cooper Walls. We dropped at about 130ft, motored West to find the end of the wall and dropped down to about 200ft. Vis was really bad all the way to 130ft, but past that was really good. At least 60ft vis. We enjoyed seeing all the big lings and rocks fish. After about 20min of fun we located a large canyon that crossed the wall in half. Torwards the end of the canyon there is a nice ledge which is usually full of fish. We saw several large Vermillion, China Rockfish, Tree fish and many others.|
We headed back to the wall to look for the pair of wolf eels that are usually at 120ft but vis was so bad shallow that we gave up and called the dive.
Nice summer night dive during the day!
