Hey all,

As a fairly new diver, I'm wondering what tricks or techniques you use to find the small, interesting stuff like Nudis?

Is it just experience in knowing where they might be hiding, or does it take a sharp eye, practice and patience?

Yes, and Yes. Figuring out what nudis eat or what they like to crawl around on is a big help. Getting down and close to the bottom and looking carefully at everything is the best way to start.

Already getting down there and taking it slow, just haven't had much luck thus far.

Is there a general food source for the majority of them? Something that would cover my bases in most circumstances?
