No problem diving in 120 air temp being underwater. But when U come 2 the surface and it's 120+ do U hurry 2 the shade and its 110 or what? Or do U make your dives early morning or evenings? I might B going 2 visit AZ this year and do some diving so I'm just inquiring.

Ummm I do 1 of 2 things in the summer

Dive in me pool and then go straight to the A/C in the house or...

Get on a plane and go somewhere cooler- and where the visib is more than 6 feet.

Diving in Lake Pleasant. Right now the vis is about 15 - 20 feet. Fish are really aggressive. New baby fish are all around. I use a 7 mil with vest/hood. Big scuba days at the lake next saturday the 2nd of May. Vis in the summer drops. When we do the dive cleanup in september vis is 5 - 10 if you are lucky. If you want to dive in the summer you can try some of the mountain lakes. Never dived there but I have been told you still need a 7 mil.

I keep cool by diving in the Pacific...San Diego/San Fran is a much nicer climate

Please, Please PLEASE stop "texting" on the forums. It's considered very poor taste to to use letters and numbers for shorthand. I feel like I'm reading a text form a junior high kid.

Ok, back to the topic.

Re: spearfishing, check Arizona Game and Fish Department: azgfd.gov (http://www.azgfd.net) the info is burried in the site, just can't remember where we found it last time!
