Michigan St. and the Broadwalk, Hollywood, FL
The Fathom Five Meteorologist forecasts a wind shift on Thursday with predicted results of only 2 foot waves. Winds may still be gusty but waves will be reduced enough to get into the water. Experience teaches us that lobster emerge immediately after a hard blow like we just had, so an early evening dive may be productive. Visibility may not be great but that sometimes helps in lobster hunting.
This dive is probably not for beginners for two reasons: 1) The water may still be choppy from winds in excess of 10 knots, and 2) cloudy water is a challenge in daytime much less at night. All divers should possess a primary and a backup light. Tank markers are recommended as well. If lobstering, a gauge and license are minimal equipment.
Parking may be limited but we will try to get as close to the Broadwalk as possible. If weather conditions are not good enough by early afternoon, Tom will cancel the dive to prevent anyone from an unnecessary drive to the beach. Parking is only $1.50 per hour at the MasterMeter and freshwater showers are available.
