    I got nailed 4-5 times once on the arm and the others on the calves.
    Stings usually don't bother me much, just a initial zap and a few minutes to calm.
    These guys are small about 1"-2" dia. with 12"+ tentacles.
    You can hardly see them.

    Will be going out tomorrow, but from a boat.
    Will post when I get back.

    Did not find any jellies today.
    But we were out in 28' depths.
    They could be closer to shore.
    Good luck.

    The small ones aren't too bad. Like 2th Divr said, after the initial zap, it's not bad. There are some larger ones out there. One of the big ones got me earlier in the week, bad enough I cut the dive short. That was more of an issue of bad viz, didn't see the long tentacle until it was inches from my face....too late. Viz was better yesterday.

    Any reports for yesterday? We heard some storms last night up by Clearwater. We may take a dip today to see what things are like.
