Water clarity this time of year is amazing here in southeast. With a couple prime free-diving tides lately, I went out snorkeling after work the other day and pulled some nice abs; biggest one was 4.5" Also went out a few weekends ago for a Scuba dive with a buddy and easily procured our limit of Rock Scallops. A couple were around 7" wide. With visibility up to 80', it's a perfect time to be diving in Southeast! That is - until the herring murk up the water in a few weeks.
