View Full Version : Pre Blizzard Dive
Was in the H2O Yesterday off Rockport round 12PM.
32 on the surface and 37 at depth. Real clear 12-15 foot vis.
Saw a few snails- but I let them live.
Clav- Coz is off this Spring - but I'll be down in Westport for a week. I'll let you know dates as we get closer.

I got a line on a couple of good spots for lobster...I might be going next weekend or during the week.
Once you get over the ice cream headache it's not so bad....
Yes- it hurts at first.
In the H20 Sat 'round 12PM Cat rocks in Rock Port.
What do you have in mind?
I'll be down on the cape visiting the family- Mid feb. Lets book it!

Maybe we could get in around here. There is a thousand marinas and they hold some lobster all year.
Sorry to hear about cozumel...it's nice!

you guys are sick.... what are u guys wearing drysuits?? the kid down the hall in my dorm was out sufing the day after the snow with only a 3 mil wetsuit on here in RI. tell me thats not crazy.

That is crazy, the water is probably 38 where he was.
I have a 7mil neoprene dry suit. Henderson Arctic. Price was right, I love it for what I do, it's perfect. I got a good blast of cold water down my neck when I turned my head and looked up...other than that, I stay nice and warm with sweats on underneath.
The bggest advantage is you are sort of dry when you get out of the water...I prefer a wetsuit (less drag)and will be back in one as soon as I can bear it.

Back in the day...I didn't realize how cold my hands had gotten, I couldn't even release the buckle on my weight belt or BC. No joke.
H2O was 35 at depth in folly cove this weekend.
I am diving a DUI CF200. Crushed neoprean tough as hell also warm with a thick combo of expediation weight fleece underneath + 2 pairs of wool socks and the DUI dry gloves. I loose the gloves as soon as there are fish to shoot or bugs to grab.
What kid of deapth are you getting on the bug shore dives?

15 feet tops. It's all very shallow coves and around the marinas.
