A couple bugs before bedtime and lost gear report

Finally got my first dive in for this lobster season Monday night in LA County. Didn't want to stay out too late since I had work in the morning so I got out there around 9 pm.

I was pretty stoked on the conditions with no wind and not much surge and decent visibility for my spot. First 30 minutes I found nothing but shorts and was feeling like I should go back and grab my pole spear and start picking off sculpin (my favorite fish).

Finally, I found a decent size bug, lined up my grab, and missed terribly, only to have him bolt right into my mask. Disheartened at my missed opportunity and after shouting off a few swear words, I got back to the grind and was able to shake off the rust and grab a couple of bugs.

Didn't get close to a limit because, let's face it, I'm not that good... But I'm still stoked on cooking these things up Cantonese style.

Also... I lost my mako minimus mask and my riffe stable snorkel on the walk back to my truck. I must've dropped it without noticing and went back to look for it after I got to my truck but had no such luck. I would be ecstatic if someone came across it and returned it to me, I would even buy you a beer or 10.

Thanks Mike!

I know LA County is big, but I was just thinking that if anyone came accross that mask and snorkel combo in LA County and read this post then they would know it was mine
