McKinney Park, Lake Winnipesaukee dive trip

On Saturday, September 3rd Eileen and I went to McKinney Park on Lake Winnipesaukee. This is a popular dive site. Many local dive shops use the place for open water certification classes and check out dives.

The entry is very rocky so we had to be very careful getting in. There were more waves than I was hoping for, mostly from boat traffic. We managed to get our fins on and out into the water between wake waves.

We headed due west into an area of enormous boulders mentioned in Shoredive.com Webpage.

It was not long before we were seeing lots of Bluegill Sunfish and Small mouth Bass.

I counted about half a dozen or so Bass in the area. One of them (pictured above) took an interest in us a actually followed us for a while.
