    This dive takes place in the neighboring town of Ishpeming, MI. Lake Angeline was drained and mined for iron which is found throughout Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I wasn't expecting the dark and cold water that we experienced. But the submerged forest was a real treat. LMK what you think of today's video and whether or not you'd like to see more like this.

    Thanks! I wonder if it's just as dark on a sunny day.

    I can't wait to find out. I will know next summer when I search some more for sunken ruins. The buildings pictured in the vintage photos suggest that there should be.

    Hard to believe that our viz is better here. I'm going to go back on a sunny day and hopefully find it even better yet. I'm fairly certain there will be ruins down there somewhere and hope to find something.

    Ever been to Bonne Terre? I went pre GoPro so I need to get back there again. It would make a great video.

    I have not been to Bonne Terre. I haven't looked to see if they are still open, with the lawsuit I have read about.

    Most of my diving this year has been at Table Rock Lake, Beaver Lake, and Stockton Lake. My last dive at Table Rock had very poor vis (6-8'), and got worse (down to about 4' or so) with depth due to the lake turning.

    I did not hear about a lawsuit but I did find an article <below> will be looking into that some more. It would be a shame to lose Bonne Terre because its such a unique dive location.
    4" of viz does not make a for fun diving. I'll do that or less for our local water park installs, but for fun? Lake Superior is usually clearer than that if the weather permits.
