    They are good eating, but I ain't sucking the heads.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    Had one crawling across our parking lot at work the other day. Went to pick him up to get him off the parking lot and he wanted put some Rambo on me. So, I left him. Came back later and now he is part of our parking lot.

    Dove the bluffs this morning for the annual shining of the pig. I had decent viz once past the mass entry point. I would call it 15 @ 35', max 47' and it looked to get better below but was diving wet. here's some short video highlights.

    wheelman and i hit the lake for an epic day of diving on saturday. we had 8 tanks between the two of us and wheel brought his whip so we could fill our doubles on the boat. we put in some hardcore hours under water. nearly 5 hours of bottom time for the day.

    this was not pleasure diving. it was a recon mission for the upcoming spear season. we found some new spots but, more importantly, we saw tons of fish. if it had been legal to spear we would have been able to have a fish fry for the whole forum saturday night. notable sightings included:

    • 2 fatty channel cats
    • 2 mediocre blue cats
    • 1 MASSIVE blue (almost black)
    • a school of 5 to 6 walleye - all babies, though
    • 2 trophy stripers that mocked us on the north side (bastards)
    • 1 respectable 3-4lb. flathead


    for the moat part the viz was 20+ above the thermocline which was ~24'. then you hit a layer of haze that lasts down to 26' and it opens back up. water near the dam was noticeably warmer with a deeper thermocline of ~28' and a thicker haze.

    water temps were +76 on the surface, dropped into the mid-60s below the 'cline.

    if the lake stays like this we are in for a great remainder of the summer. we'll be heading out again on saturday 6/16 for our first full morning of hunting since march. pics and trip report to follow.

    cheers!
