John & Crystal Layman - July 28, 2007© Photos by Mark Miller © Hi-Res Source
This was a Diving Charter by John Layman & his daughter Crystal of Ocean Springs. My son Paul and his friend Ty Cochran worked the deck. The Day started out real nice with calm winds and seas. We stopped by a shrimp boat and John & Crystal snorkeled with the Dolphins while the rest of us jigged for Cobia. We headed south, but the winds picked up and stopped us a little short at FH-7. We dropped on the Rowan Crew Quarters, but visibility was near zero below 100 feet making this dive futile. We then hit the nearby Oil Rig and had 100 feet plus of visiblity down to 100 feet. We left there and headed north stopping at the "G" Rig for a dive. It was not quite as nice, but quite divable. John poked a Sheepshead since the Red Snapper were not showing themselves. We headed north hoping to hit some wrecks in FH-13, but the seas really started picking up, so we just came on in. As usual, I got a few pictures to show.
