We took a little walk to the end of the North Jetty, walked our tanks, then our BC's/other gear, and made one final walk with our suits on. This was a very very good dive, the waves were rolling in green and clear. We had 20 ft viz and shot a 20lb lingcod. There were many more lings to be had but after catching one that size why do you need anything else. We got in the water right at the end, under the protection of that small hook. We ended up staying out there for the entire dive and swimming half way back before getting out and walking the rest of the way. Entry wasn't too bad but getting out was very difficult due to 5 ft swells coming into the Jetty. This would be a better dive during low tide with less waves.
