Scuba Diving Forum

Recommended Posts

TMF89

I didn't see a forum for Site Discussion, so sorry if I got the wrong forum on this. If I did, if whoever moves it could let me know where it went/to post in the future, I'd appreciate it, thanks.

I was just wondering if it would be possible, and how big of an interest there is, for a scuba diving forum. I'm just getting certified up at college here, and I'd love to talk to people here on FM about the sport! So I was just wondering from the Admins if it'd be possible, and from the forum members how much interest this is. So if you scuba dive, are interested in diving, or just would like the forum for whatever reason, please voice yourselves below!

What does it cost to get certified? I have always thought about diving but never got into it yet.

Around $400 I think, I'm doing mine through school so it's $200, but that's without the open water dive.

Basically it's Class Time, then Pool Sessions, then an Open Water dive, and you're certified.

I don't know if there would ever be a forumn but there are other sites out there that have forums that are more dive specific, it's a tough one as there are probably a few members that dive, but use other sites as their info gathering and trip planning do to the minimal places to dive in MN, just talk with your instructor and get his recommendation i'm sure he knows a few good sites to look into. Have fun with it, it's a completely different world down there and truly an amazing experience.

Oh and watch who you talk to about the spear guns, you might find a few enemies that way. I really have no preference but the general census might feel otherwise.

      What's the plan after the deer farms are gone?  I'm all for ganging up on a minority and squashing their rights, but we've still got a real problem to deal with.

      Soon as I can get my car in the yard.  I don't have water though, so temps don't matter.  Even if it's cold and sloppy yet, I can still hang out inside and grill outside.

      Depends on the year and since we are on an island, it really depends on ice and/or when the dock company can drop our dock. Usually early May

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....
