View Full Version : local water temps?

03-07-2009, 11:16
With only a couple days of nice weather, I'm being premature, but I'm hoping the quarry temps can at least get into the 50's. Has anyone been out yet to the IN, IL, or KY quarries? I loaned all my gear to a friend this week as he was lucky enough to have aweek long trip down the the Keys; at least my gear was able to get wet.

Not yet, but I know what you mean about the "itch to get wet", This weather has done it for me too. It spurred me to start reaching out to possible buddies like me who work weekends and have weekdays off.

All you have to do is ask...
