November has been awesome! I've been exploring new spots all year and I think I finally found some new good areas. Here are some pics and a short video of some of the highlights from my first few dives of November in Monterey County, one of which was with my buddy Warren (username: dirkbeachman).

Looks like a great time with some nice fish!

How did you process the ling jaws? Really cool presentation.

Thanks! Baked it covered in foil at 350 for 45 minutes, ate the head meat and rinsed off the bones with water, then used hot glue to piece it together.

Haha I wish I could have taken him out! He followed us around the whole day and spooked all the fish!
