Antarctic Fishing 3 - Go on, stop stalling, get down the hole!

Swimming between two ice holes in the relative shallows isn't too bad as it's quite light and you can see the bottom, but this was out in much deeper water 60m+. The sea-ice cuts out a lot of the light reaching beneath it and in such deep water there is nothing to see as a visual cue. The diver in this case is dependent on his depth gauge to stay at the right level and the line "drawn" by the skidoo on the surface that he is following to the next hole.

Eventually, the next hole comes into sight and light shines down like a beacon.
