April 11th out on Silver Lake –
Six divers, the plunge to take.
There were teams of John & Pete, Roger & Rhonda, and two Jeff G’s;
Two went wet; four went dry.
But in the end, only two dry –
And boy did they freeze!
Water temp 40;
Depths at 34 feet
Dove for 44 min with vis at 30,
Which was a nice treat!
Pete & John found a bushel crate
And a chair for Pete
Which did not support his weight!
There were two extremely large fish that came along for the dive –
A huge bullhead and Pete grabbed the tail of a 4 ft. gar
Biggest ever we’ve seen alive!
Rhonda scored a golf ball;
Jeffs’ team spotted a fish crib;
Pete & John saw a 20 ft. Christmas tree –
But only a wet body for Jeff Greb!
Pete found a shanty,
But seemed to lose John,
Who swam way ahead and beyond!
John scored yet more bottles –
Quite a stash!
But again lost Pete in a mad cat & mouse dash!
In the end the other treasures didn’t go far –
The goggles and pulley system
Mysteriously landed on John’s car!
Roger and Jeff G came back saturated wet –
A leak in their dry suits,
Would be a sure bet!
They were quick to change,
While Rhonda was happy as clams –
Prancing around in her dry long underwear jams!
In the end it was off to Chili’s for the burger special & beer.
Pattie Grebs joined us with Jeff
To add to the cheer!
Hope the weather warms up,
For our next dive of the spring –
We’re on to North Lake next week,
To do our dive THANG!!!!
