Swim today

Went for swim, had to clean bottom of walfootrot hull . Thought I may as well try for occy . Seen something I have never seen. Huge occy getting eaten by hundreds of tiny occys. Swam down pulled occy out of hole with gaff( I new it was dead). Hundreds of tiny Occo eating it.( 1 cm long ones). Poked back in ,Some other holes had hundreds of tiny grape like pods with tiny occys swimming inside of pods. Water was clear ( great viz). Left whole area alone. Thousands of egg pods everywhere. Pretty cool. Went to another area , no pods just huge occys .15 big ones (30 kilo with heads off) . Heads weighed 10 kilo . I don't normally weigh them but I wanted to know. Biggest I've seen . Water was like ice. Also there is salmon in sound.:)

 Big suckers! Definitely would have been cool to see the smaller ones having a munch... seen as your getting into the cold water still are you sure you don't want to get my anchor haha

looks like a good shot on the salmon with the gidgy.
