As promised, here are a few more photos of the 10 13/16th inch Abalone Ken Bailey found while diving off of The Sea Ranch. It is uncommonly large for an area that sees abalone divers often during the season. It's an all-time record for Ken.
These photos were taken by Ken's diving buddy, Jack Likins. They are in the process of filming a sequel to their DVD "Hunt for Red Treasure" and caught this find on film.
Thanks to both of these awesome abalone hunters.
To see another photo of these two with their trophy abalones and a lingcod, here's the link: http://www.mendonomasightings.com/2012/06/30/salmon-is-being-caught-off-the-mendonoma-coast-and-today-is-the-last-day-of-abalone-diving-for-a-month/
