Coming straight out of the cover of winter and into the ice cold water of the lake can be a bit of a shock. After taking your first dive off the boat for the season, you can easily become water logged. Getting too much water in your head through your ears can make you easily nauseous. To avoid nausea, simply squish some of those little ear plugs into each ear.
