Treasure Diving

March 23, 2014  •  1 Comment

There is a small band of winter warriors who comb the bottom of the local rivers looking for antique bottles up here in the Great Lakes. Many of these locations are known - a few are not. Finding a good spot that hasn't been picked over is akin to a fisherman and his honey hole - you don't publicize it. The first rule of river dive club - you don't talk about river dive club, to steal a line from Brad Pitt.

But today we went to a well known location to eat breakfast and freeze our butts off in the South Channel of the St. Clair River. Harsen's Island is a neat little island where the St. Clair River dumps into Lake St. Clair. We dove in about 30 feet of not-too-fast current. The visibility was great at around 20 - 25 feet. But it was cold. I recorded about 34 or 35 degrees during my 32 minute dive. And I didn't find anything special, which is why I don't mind telling you about today's river dive club dive. But a few folks from our unofficial, ever-changing group had some nice finds. Led by Rich Synowiec, owner of Diver's Incorporated in Ann Arbor, we had a great time as usual.
