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.
