Don't know about your area, but you can get a glimpse of stuff from the California Central Coast at my website.

Hope you enjoy it;

I like your site - especially your classification system. This was interesting:

"Swimmy Things
Fish images
I find most fish incredibly difficult to shoot."

I find this to be the case with Garfishes. I recommend perseverance...

Firstly, what happened to you on Fri? I was stood around on the Ferryboat pontoon like a lemon at 1pm as arranged.

Secondly, surprisingly little. My 14yo son will surf any conditions all day long, but he has issues when it comes to sliding over the side of the boat in deep water. His imagination runs a little riot. Having snorkeled and spear-fished these waters for many years, I try to assure him that there's nothing that would be remotely interested in him.

Wrasse are the most common fish, followed by Pollock, both are pretty dim and not worth un-loading a spear for. You'll get a few Spider crabs dotted about at this time of year. Bass are the prized catch, but not exactly plentiful followed by mullet (yuk). Occasionally, young seals will take a look, but they're not too brave, mature seals can be a little less so and give one a bit of a start.
That's about it, I've not met a dolphin in the water yet, but live in hope. I'd love to swim with a Basking shark, but I'm afraid that the 'wooly jumper' brigade would jump up and down at the prospect.

You can let your fevered imagination run riot all you want - but I won't be wearing a Red Carnation for you
