Robert and I went out on the kayaks for a dive with great conditions. At one of the sites, I took a drop down to 20-30' and saw a very distinctly colored lingcod thrashing on the bottom with something in its mouth. I went up for a quick breath of air, then dropped down and shot it. When I threw it in the kayak I noticed the fish inside was a cabezon.
