Wednesday Night Meetup Dive @ Pickerel Lake, Pinckney

The plan is to meet at 6:30, be in the water by 7 and have our usual after dive social with food and refreshments.

Pickerel Lake is another of Michigan's hidden gems.  It's not deep (around 25') but has lots of aquatic life.  The parking lot is small and often fills up with swimmers on the weekend.  There is a short walk (about 75 yds) from the parking lot to the lake.

I apologize that I don't have an address for your GPS.  There IS no address for this Meetup but the coordinates are accurate.  I usually take US 23 south from the shop to N. Territorial Rd and go right (west) to Hankerd Rd (north).  Take Hankerd to Potawatomi Rd on the right and continue to the parking lot.

The emergency contact for this Meetup is Bill B. at[masked] in case you have trouble finding the place.

Don't forget your diver floats, flashlights and a slate is a good idea.  Also bring some mosquito repellent and a chair if you want to sit (no picnic tables in the area).   

We have been eating really well with the great dishes people are bringing to pass.  We definitely don't go away hungry. 

We only have a few more Wednesday night dives and we will be switching over to Sundays.  Hope to see you at Pickerel Lake!

    Wow. We couldn't ask for a better dive evening. The only problem now is the days are shorter and the mosquitoes own the night. If you stay too long after dark you'll need a blood transfusion.

    The deepest recorded depth was 41 ft by Mark K and Brian Ch. Temps were about 48 degrees at 35 ft. and visibility was about 10-15 ft around 15 ft. The bottom was pretty easy to see with a light but the drop offs were the most interesting. Lots of nice big catfish.

    Thanks Bill S for being my buddy this dive and sharing your goodies with us. The food and company this evening were great.

    We also said goodbye to Teresa M. She will be leaving for Scotland next week and we wish her the best with her new adventures. She will be the 2nd person who traveled across the great waters to the British Isles (Jay O. - who went to England - was the first). I'm beginning to see a pattern here.

    Next dive at Spring Mill Pond will be our last Wed night dive. See you there.

    A nice turnout. I'm thinking the stage is set for a cook off between Kelly, Bill, Tom and Kim.

    Looking forward to Wednesdays Pickerel lake dive. I'm bringing chicken sausages again.

    August 25, 2014

    • Mark H.

      Ok, plans change. I won't be bringing sausages. Work interfered and I'll have to pick something up on the way. See you there!

      No problemo. Still had lots of food, but those chicky snausages are special.

    We've got homemade black bean corn jalapeno salsa and chips. With homemade cinnamon rolls for desert.

      They were BOTH magnificent. I didn't try the salsa on the cinnamon rolls, though. I thought that might be taking things a little too far.

    OK. So I went to do a recon of Pickerel Lake and all of a sudden the sky opens up. There was more traffic coming out of the place then going in. I felt like I was in the middle of a cattle stampede! It was a very busy place up til then, so things may be a little crowded.

    I've got the dogs, dog buns, potato chips, corn chips and blueberry pie. Bring some chairs to sit on (no picnic tables near the parking lot) and some mosquito repellent. There is a porta potty there and I ALWAYS bring my trusty roll of Charmin. If it's good enough for bears, it's good enough for me.

    Don't forget your dive lights and remember to check the batteries in your dive lights and dive computer/watch.

    See everyone tomorrow.

      I'm pretty sure everyone was leaving because of the rain Bill, not just because you showed up. Just in case quit asking people if they want to feel how soft the Charmin is. :~)

  • William B.

    Kirk, I will be very suspicious if you tell us you can't come because it is your anniversary....again!

    August 21, 2014

    • Kirk S.

      Well (blush) we are still "celebrating".­ :~)

      August 26, 2014

  • William B.

    I'm looking forward to diving Pickerel Lake again. Small, quiet, peaceful, cozy are the words that come to mind. On yes, and porta potties.

    One of our regular divers is leaving for an extended visit to Scotland shortly and this will be her last dive with us for some time. Please stop by for a send off party and wish Teresa M. well on her adventure. We're hoping she'll arrange a Meetup for us at Scapa Flow while she's there. I'm in!
