I did a quick dive at Upper Goose lake this morning around the boat launch. Luckily no one was there. Unfortunate, All of the boaters and RVs have appeared around my usual spots, so my options for dive sites is rapidly decreasing as more people start going outside.
I’m not sure about how to integrate google drive pictures here. Hopefully it worked.
Both Ping Viewers lost communication with the sonars at the start of the dive so I didn’t have any sonar for this dive. I decided to stay in the shallows where the visibility was good so I didn’t get too lost. There was a lot of interesting stuff to look at in this area. I think it’s a good idea anyways to do some dives without sonar so I can work on my other navigation skills and don’t become too reliant on it.
I was surprised at how good the camera looked this dive, but that was probably because of the high contrast environment with a lot of ambient light.
2:18 - A big fish started following me and made regular reappearances throughout the dive.
6:47 - Finally navigated to the boat launch.
14:59 - I think I found some sunglasses, but I can’t grab them yet
There was a ton of trash in the area. I got my Newton Gripper this week and should have it installed this weekend, so this would be a good place to test it out in the next few weeks and see how much trash I can get. The end of the boat launch is less than 4 feet deep, so maybe the boaters coming in had to throw their trash overboard in order to lighten the boat to raise it out of the water high enough to clear the shallow ramp.
