Sea Sports of Houston joined us again for a two tank trip to the Texas Clipper. The moderate current was coming from the southwest and divers were able to escape it by swimming on the structure side of the wreck. Visibility was 40 to 50 ft down to 60 feet and fell to around 20 ft at the 80 foot mark. The trigger fish were looking for a free meal from divers and many reported being accosted by more than one at a time. The Houston area divers reported seeing schools of mutton snapper, juvenile amberjack, triggerfish, squirrel fish, spadefish, look downs, arrow crab, bristle worms, blennies and an octopus. Everyone appeared to have a good time and many photos were taken as possible entries in the SPI Dive Week photo contest.
