Details:  We were going to head to Pt Lonsdale, but heard conditions weren’t good there, so change to Steeles Rocks. Conditions looked ok, but  vis wasn’t very good. We headed out a fair way and then followed the deep  (4m) reef to the east. I was suprised by the diversity of fish life in the area, we saw large schools of salmons, adult horseshoe leatherjackets, the usual moonlighters, old wives and maybe even a herring cale, but i think it might have been a blue weed whiting on further research.  There were also heaps of small stingarees and a cuttlefish towards the end. I came out at the exposed rock near the small cliff, ditched my gear and walked back to the carpark.   

Camera Details: Canon 17-40mm , dual SS200 strobes
