Default More video from "Lady of the Lake"

I'm sure you're sick of Lady of the Lake video. So here's more! A few clips from an August dive. Some of the minimal underwater video I shot this summer.

Great quality and visibility. I don't recall seeing so many fish in other Winni dive video's. I'm a little surprised we don't see more fishermen working these sites.

They weren't shy either. I wonder if they're used to people diving the wreck, because they had no interest in moving out of my way.

Default Nice Video, but Rock Bass

Looks like Rock Bass with those red eyes.

Back in the very late 50's into the early 60's, my folks had a place in the trailer park in Glendale. Many's the day we went out in my buddy's Boston Whaler and either did SCUBA or free diving on the Lady. Lots of fish in those days as well, albeit bass other than rock bass, along with some pickerel and sunfish. Maybe Fish&Game will authorize a large scale spear fishing expedition to wipe out these Rock Bass. 😲
On the serious side, nice video. Nice to see the wreck hasn't been destroyed over the years and reduced to pieces of wood lying on the lake floor. Thanks for posting.

More than likely nothing is going to happen unless it stats to (really) impact the other more prized fish in the lake.

@KTO Thanks for the diving video. I love getting a chance to see whats underneath the surface of the lake.

Thanks for the videos. I never tire of watching these.

Isn't there some way to trap those rock fish.

I'm a retired workaholic and continuing aquaholic.

Though there were a few smallies in this video (very few), this site is overrun with Rock Bass, an invasive fish no one likes to catch.

That's too bad. I hear rock bass are great for the garden. Would love to have them caught and re-purposed.

Yeah, the rock bass have been thriving on the Lady for 20 years now. The red-eyed devils just LOVE wrecks (and structure in the general). Case in point, the following video of the old Alton Bay mixer barge, shot last September. Bonus points if you spot the nice yellow perch. A few nice smallies in there as well...
