    Default Unusual Sight at Dale Hollow 2/21/20

    Yesterday I had a client with me spider-rigging at Dale Hollow Lake. The water is still high and murky and fishing was tough. We did manage, however, to catch a dozen quality crappie plus a bass or two. I have fished all my life in all kinds of situations and all kinds of weather, but it was, beyond any doubt, the coldest day I have ever spent on the water. When we unloaded the boat the temp and wind combined made it feel like 11 degrees. It never went a lot above that all day. Get the picture? It was COLD! But about lunchtime, we looked up to see a very large boat coming toward us....not a fishing boat, a big ski rig. And lo and behold, there was a guy behind it water skiing! Now....the water temp was 48 degrees and I've already mention the air temp. At that time, I would say that the air temp was about 30 degrees and the NE wind made it feel like 20. I know this....the fishing lines on our trolling poles were still freezing to our rod tips at times....and here was this guy----skiing! Sure, he had on a wet suit, but I just don't see what kept him from getting hypothermia. His head and face were bare, as well as his hands. THe guy had to be FREEZING! I told my client, " In 50 years I've seen a lot of dumb things on the lake, but this just about takes the cake!" I was sitting there shivering already....and seeing this guy skiing didn't make me a bit warmer!

    That's crazy. Just goes to show though it just gets to cold for the fisherman sometimes but not the skiers or fish LoL.

    up until he died we had a guy here that would ski on the Ohio River every year on New Years Day. I went down to see him do it a couple of times. He was not only crazy, but about 2 and a half sheets in the wind, if you know what I mean

    I was the guy in the blue ranger who witnessed this along with you! Not only was the idiot water skiing in 30 degree weather, they entered a no ski zone as well! Good thing I was off duty and didnít have my ticket book! It was certainly a different kind of cold! I donít see how it was humanly possible to be water skiing without getting hypothermia! I actually have a video of it but for some reason I canít post it. The fishing was tough.
