I was curious if there were any scuba divers here? I'm sure others will enjoy this too, but thought it was a good chance to reach out to other divers and get some other dive videos posted up here.

This is a video I just pieced together from the video I shot last night doing a night dive at one of our local lakes.

I couldn't see the video :crybaby:

I scuba dive too, though it's been a few years - never any freshwater diving so I'd like to see the video.

Coldest I saw was 66F at 26ft, night dives we stay pretty shallow just checking weed beds to see what kind of fish we find.


Dstjohn here is the link to YouTube

This is a video of where we are diving next week.. this video was 2 years ago, we are hoping for a repeat of this dive and finding the smelt, but it's been 90F or more the past few days, not taking the water temp the direction we needed it to go for the smelt to be active... https://youtu.be/ej24EQw5Qkk

this is a bit of a long video, but it is the new lake just down the road from my house.... we finally dove it yesterday. not my best video, but I was able to edit it enough to make it OK... the colors were all messed up from using my gopro filter in too shallow of water so it washed the colors out and could barely see anything so it took me a while to figure out how to edit it in ways I've never done before to salvage it...

only hit 32ft deep and when we did the visibility went from 10-15ft down to zero. 66-68F water temp right now.

Thanks for sharing. I have been diving a lot but never in fresh water. Interesting to see all the weed beds.

a lot of divers around here don't dive locally... either because they think it is too cold or they think there is nothing to see... they really miss out on some good dives! Especially in our Great Lakes... some of the best shipwreck diving in the world is in our Great Lakes!

I have probably only done about 20 dives in saltwater, the rest (probably 150+) have all been locally in Michigan in freshwater. My dive season is coming to an end now that our Wednesday night dive club is done for the year, I have to head home to take care of my son until my wife gets home from work which is usually after 6pm, and it won't be too much longer that it will be dark by 6pm as we approach winter... so I might do some night dives, otherwise my opportunity is limited to the weekends... which I may still do a few weekend dives. I have not logged any of my dives over the summer, but now that I'm about done diving I'll unload my gear out of my truck and bring my computer in to start logging everything I've done over the summer to get a better idea of how many dives I have total now.
