Captain’s Noon Report – Under Sea – 2019-09-24

Location: Lat 29 07.81N Long 118 17.08W
Weather: Water Vis 30-50ft, Water temp 21C.
Status: At anchor at Guadalupe Island in 260 ft depth

Clear Sunny Sky. Mostly calm wind and seas. Long swell 1-2 ft. No Current. Yesterday afternoon a 3-4 ft Long swell started coming from the SE and with it bad visibility. Last part of the afternoon water turned murky and visibility was around 15 ft – but sharks were still around. During the day we saw 9 different sharks: Luca Arnone, Nicole, Rhett, Crazy Tryss, Nelson, Doug, and others. We ended the day with the famous and delicious taco night. This morning visibility was better than yesterday afternoon, around 40-50 ft and water temp 21C, 1 degree warmer than yesterday. The morning has been a bit slow, it has been good action though. We have seen around 5 different sharks so far. Nicole and Paul Walker are the identified sharks so far. Nicole is the largest shark we have seen so far this month and I dare to say the largest of the season, she is massive, around 17 ft! She has been active today, trying to get the hang bait several times and some with good breaches. The day started cloudy, but now clouds dissipated letting the sun shine bright strong.
