Re: Daily Vis report thread

I went on the Barnegat Light jetty yesterday Sunday at high tide. The viz was poor, maybe 3 ft. I don't get it because the pools of water that accumulate on the other side of the jetty at high tide showed clear water. The Bay water was also clear in some areas. So why was the water in the inlet so turbid, like milky white at 20 ft ?
To me it could be just silk and sand in suspension, after a strong disturbance. But what disturbance ?
It is true that il looked like the entire US navy was anchored at the mouth of the inlet for fishing, I never seen so many boats there, but small fishing boats, not capable of disturbing the bottom. So I don't know.

I just saw Togs zipping fast in front of my nose.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Any words of advice on diving post dental extraction? Had a back molar yanked and theres a hole there for a few weeks , didnt know if diving 20-30 ft would have an effect or cause possible dry socket. Thanks and hope to hear back

Re: Daily Vis report thread

did somebody go in Barnegat inlet today Saturday, or if given a chance, can somebody have a look at the inlet and report ?

The weather marine reports a rough sea with 3-4ft waves today and same thing for tomorrow, in addition to rain. I'd like to know if the waves are that bad in the inlet. I don't mind the rain but 4 ft waves are too much. 2-3ft doable, although not much fun.

Thanks,
Ric

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Bad viz yesterday at high tide in the inlet at Barnegat light. Fish must be there, judging from the entire navy fleet fishing in the mouth of the inlet, and the many reelers packed on the tip of the jetty. But they were impossible to see to me. Water was cold though, but milky white in shallow depth, dark green in depth. I went a few times in that dark depth but couldn't see better, basically I couldn't even see the tip of the spear.
I wonder how is the viz outside of the inlet.
