Nice first dive of the season. Wow, 40lb belt? I don't think I've ever gone more than 12-14lbs even in a drysuit. Extra weight does help with currents though. Looking forward to seeing what else you find this season. Be safe, and keep hunting.

Good Luck :icon_thumright:
Keep it up - theres a lot of silver and gold at spots that used to have old rafts and platforms
Do research - just about every spot had one or more

Ive had health issues last few yrs stopping me from getting way out - hoping this year i will
article i did few yrs ago

CB Makes a VERY good point. Getting certified could SAVE your life or someone else's life also. I NEVER go in any water diving without at least one SHARP KNIFE !!!EVEN FRESH WATER LAKES !!!

The reason I carry at least one knife is FISHING LINES a nd lures. If you get a fishing hook in you you need to cut the line . You have to trust me on this there are a LOT of FISHING LINES and lures out there in the water to get tangled in
