First frog I've seen at this location.

Sorry for the crap pic. If it had been any good, I'd have posted in the photo forum.

Very cool.
Care to share the secret spot?

No secret. The Blue Heron Bridge East of Riviera Beach. Actually inside the Lake Worth inlet. A shore dive.

I have been going there for years to do weight checks. Went out with some Scuba Board folks who frequent the place and I have seen Batfish, Seahorses and more.
I went out today with 700# because I had moved some weight around. An instructor from one of the local shops waved me over and made the "picture" signal. I started snapping pics of his class.
Then he gave me the "You stupid ****, there is a Frogfish here" signal.
By the time I got there, the students had done a number on the bottom.
Still very cool for me.

Devildiver:
I know you are into the fishes. If you scroll through these 2 Scubaboard threads you'll see some great pics. I did these two little vinettes.

Lived here for 30 years all told, and never knew all this stuff was here.
The dives are free. County park. Just have to do them around high tide.
And weather is seldom a consideration. Protected location on all quadrants.

Edit: Phil Foster Park. You can google it. If you ever make it this way, I highly recommend.
