    Got a chance to get out on Lake Erie off North East, Pa Sunday with Osprey Charters (Barcelona, NY). Trip was to the Dean Richmond (119 ffw) and the Indiana (95 ffw). Overcast day, and calm. Chilly below 50' at the thermo is there, and its 42-44 when you dip below it. Here are a couple stills that are grabs from video. Nothing epic, but here for your enjoyment (these are the Dean):

    Jim:

    A group was in it (I am not one of them). The last time I was on it before this was too long ago to really be able to compare (plus, I CO2 loaded the first time, and don't really remember much :confused4:). Jim Herbert from Osprey Charters likely can give you the best assessment.
