    Visibility has taken a real nose dive over the last week. At Madrona this morning we had 5 - 10 feet at best in the shallows, and 10 - 20 feet on the big wall. :( Going to get even worse once the herring run reaches this area....:eek:

    5 - 10 feet of visibility at Tyee this morning :(

    Lots of fish boats off of Parksville Bay. Looks like the herring run is arriving in this area :eek:

    About 10 - 15 feet of visibility at Tyee this morning. Much better than last weekend.

    Went to Oak Leaf (Oak Point) this morning. Visibility in the shallows was, at BEST five feet. Pretty well had to be touching my buddy to see him. At depth, a maximum of 55 feet, visibility wasn't much better. Due to poor visibility and current, we actually ended the dive early :(

    Was out at Tyee Cove yesterday (18th). Visibility has cleared up quite a bit - we had about 40 feet.
