Hi Burnz, It's not just about the thickness, as I said above, not all body parts are equally sensitive to cold. Also I have an open suit in 2 parts with the farmer style lowerpart overlapped by the upper part, so technically it's 5 + 5 = 10 mm on the abdomen. Plus the suit juice which insulates as well, plus my own personal body fat maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch and I was fine under the suit.
Problem was the extremities, I had holes on my gloves.

I have a real winter suit, 7 mm, but to weight it is a pain, it takes 20-22 lb with a thick hood. Perhaps i'll try it again.

I didn't say I stayed 2 hours, maybe 30-40 minutes max, with intervals on the rocks to warm my hands. Outside it was a nice day by the way.

Yeah, well the day was nice and sunny, no wind, no waves, only cold water. With fish and good vis, that would have been perfect.
That inlet is the nicest of New jersey, it has been made for us, almost. I praised Gov. Christie for not ruining it with casinos and giant wheels.

I'll take anything, even a squid from the mouth of a seabird.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

I did it again yesterday Sunday at high tide 10:30 AM-12:30. No waves but strong current and still lots of whitish stuff in suspension. Viz was improved compared to 2 weeks ago, I'd say 4-5ft in shallow water. At 15-20ft it was gloomy and viz was no better ~ 5ft. There is still a long way to go to the viz we had last April.

Somebody mentioned one Seal, a lots of birds, so they must be there for something, but I could not see anything, not even a clam.

Water was even colder than 2 weeks ago but my 5mm open suit did a perfect job, only the extremities hurt, even with brand new 7mm gloves with no holes, the fingers still hurt.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

No rush, I went today at high tide, in Barnegat Inlet as usual and saw no fish no crabs nothing. And no clams and mussels on the rocks. Water was as cold as last month. Compared to last April 2017, visibility is not as good. But during all this Winter it was not as good as Nov. and Dec. 2016 anyways.
Viz was perhaps 10ft-16ft but that's plenty good enough to hunt Togs. I couldn't see anything under the rocks and during the few deeper dives I did, around 20-25 ft. Just bare bottom. I guess water is still abnormally cold.

10 to 16ft? I jumped in there today and viz was garbage. A little better in front of lighthouse. Inlet was junk. Maybe you cought a different tide lol. High tide was shiz when i was there at 930.

hehe you can't wait either...to me it was better than last month for sure, OK maybe just 10ft then or at least twice the length of my 90cm gun, almost 2meters in good old metric system.
It was from about 10:30 AM to noon after which I agree the ebb flow degraded the viz.
But it is not garbage viz in my opinion. I got some video records. It's always worse than visually but maybe i'll make a video out of it.

Did you see something interesting beside the dirt ?

I hit squan Saturday little after slack tide. It filled in completely with sand. At low tide you could walk to the Jacks. Nothing to see but mussels and your breath. Vis varied from 7 feet to 0ft. I'm not getting back in until we hit the high 40s water temp. Hopefully that's early April.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Correction : I am reviewing my videos and for the first time ever, my camera recorded something I didn't see : a small Tog zipping in front of me. Probably the camera was looking slightly above my line of sight, or my brain was frozen.
I tried to delete that, I was reviewing a video clip from last year. Ignore. I saw no Fish, No togs, nothing.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Itching to get diving again.... just pulled my stuff out yesterday. Figure after this blow by time it clears again I may be antsy enough to take a drift.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

The bay water was clean. If you went that late you got some clean outgoing water. It sucked at 930. Water was balls cold. I aint going back till april I didnt see any fish but wasnt looking to hard or diveing in fishy spots. Viz sucked and my hands were numb. Did a quick drift back and done.
