The dive this evening at Gull Lake was called the “In Search of the Dead Cow!” and no, there was no real dead cow being searched for, this was more fun 🙂
Since I went there to take a few pictures of structure not seen before, my entry was a while little before the organized searchers and student class entered the water. That helped in having reasonably good visibility for the most part especially in the shallows.
Met a very aggressive sunfish as I neared the drop off who would not leave my camera and face mask alone and had to physically restrain his enthusiasm. Lots of fish visible but actual schools around the telephone booth, ice shanty, and in a few of the 20 foot depth weed beds.
Above 25 feet the visibility was easily 20 feet, below the visible thermocline layer, visibility dropped off considerable becoming hazy. Surface temperature was in the 60’s and dropped considerably at 40 feet. As a side note, there was a minimum of 30 divers in and out of the water in the 4 hours I was there.
Here are a few pictures of the creatures and structures laying in wait for you to see when you dive there. You can also purchase a laminated copy of the bottom structures and compass heading of both Ross Township & Prairieville Park (at Gull Lake) from Sub-Aquatic Sports & Service.
