    I just wanted 32 the first day because of the possibility of going down to 130 ft the next day it no concern so I figured a higher mix would buy me more bottom time

    Even the dive shops have been holding off. Too rough.

    BTW... For those not from California, this fucker is the Pacific Torpedo Ray.
    Also known as the Pacific Electric Torpedo Ray.

    He likes to "hover" facing into the current, and electrifies the water in front of him with around 200v, stunning his dinner and hoovering it in.

    They are said to be aggressive, but in my contacts with them, I have simply found them to be curious. If we have encountered one and just gone about our business, they have followed us, but if we take a few minutes to check it out and for it to likewise observe us, it will stay put and be in the same place when we return to the anchor line.


    An acquaintance came across one and thought it was an halibut.
    He shot it.
    Hilarity ensued.
    He paid the "stupid tax" of one new Riffe speargun.
    Like the Great White, we are above them on the food chain, we are not shark or ray food.
    Like a 12pt buck during the rut, they can hurt us.
