(stage work practice)
Sightseeing and some reel and stage handling practice. I reeled out close to 400' from the base of the main Ballbuster pinnacle along the 90'-100' deep reef. Fish life was spectacular, with very dense and big schools of rockfish mixing blues, yellowtails and canaries (we think) plus another wolfie.

Right at the base of the Ballbuster pinnacle next to my tieoff we found more wolfies, this time a couple in a den!

On the ascent we did some deco gas handoffs in a round-robin as practice.
