Winter is going. The abalone season is here.


It's been years since we had decent conditions for an abalone season opener. The last couple of years were really bad. Pushing it is never a good idea.  It's all about tides, ocean conditions, and weather.

 Check. 

OCEAN:
Early read is for 3 foot southern swell, 3 foot north.

 Check.

Only way to check out the visibility is get up there and look. I leave in the morning.

WEATHER:
Is looking great both Tuesday & Wednesday.

 Check.


Looks like we may have a decent opening this year. All I need now is a dive buddy. The usual suspects have crapped out. For reasons that pass all understanding they let their work fetish take priority over promising abalone hunting careers. All except Doug. He is going to drive eight hours from Oregon to get in water on Wednesday.

Time to dive.
