Maybe this should be in another area, but I will start it here. I went diving with my future son in law yesterday at the Edmonds Dive Park. Visibility was bad, only about 10 feet, so everything we saw was up close. One of the first fish we saw was a Ling about 20 to 25 pounds. She was apparently guarding her nest. She came straight off the bottom and blocked my path. She hovered about 12 inches in front of my mask. I suspected she was guarding eggs so we backed off and started to go around. As soon as I angled away she bit at my flippers. As my buddy passed, she tried to slam him in the chest. He was a little freaked because it was the first Ling he had seen and did not know why she was coming at him. We ended up seeing a lot of lings in the 10 to 15 pound range but the first was the only one that got aggressive. Kinda cool outing.
