I found a ton of shorts with a few keepers here and there freediving gulfside in the chilly waters-temp 67.6 degrees-not something I really enjoy in the colder water but wanted some bugs for the new year. Naturally could not net them all as I was in the water solo and it was very difficult to stay down in about 10 feet in my shorty wetsuit without a weight belt. The larger bug was super tough to get out of a rock and was super sweet to finally net. At least I got 2 for the wife and I.
Enjoy and a very Happy Buggy New Year to all!
