Lake Murray is good for diving? No kidding? We used to go up there a lot for family reunions when I was a kid. I guess it's too cold for diving up there this time of year...for most people, but I used to diving in the Pacific. Usually 53 degrees is about as cold as it gets around the Southern California Islands but I've been in water as cold as 48. Anyway, I have a drysuit so that makes a big difference.

Where else in OK, do you go?

My favorite spot in Lake Broken Bow in Ok.. Great lake that offers clean water and various dive profiles and terrain,,,,all the way from simple shore 30-40ffws to shore 166+ffw dips....with a boat you can get 180ffw.. Water is a bit chilly this time of the year...low 40's as Murray will be a few degrees warmer.

Yeah, that is too cold. 48 degrees gave me an "ice cream" headache. Anyway, the drysuit needs new seals so I'll probably send it in soon.

What about Lake Tenkillers, ever tried that one? I did a quick search last night and that came up first.

D00d,

I use to live in Dallas. Moved away from the Lone Star State in 2004 and
I'm now in Fla. It's a little closer to the ocean. Someone told me the ocean is
just off shore here. Someone said theres good ice diving here. I'm still waiting
for He _ _ to freeze over so I can go..

I use to work outta Oceans Window in Plano. They've been sold since then.
Now I believe it's Blue Dolphin or maybe something else..

I miss the Lone Star... Not another state like it. When I see those Texas license
plates roaming around Fla. I want to yell out of my window... "Don't do it.."
Go Home! I miss Texas...
But I love diving and thats why I stay in Fla. For the diving. I'm thinking
about working my way farther south.. but It may be time for me to see everything and move to Mexico for awhile.. I need to just dive my ass off...

Stop by the old shop for me and tell the people there I said Hello..

Cheers,

Sure are y'all! We do our dive training in several places, but for fun diving they're OK for a couple of day/weekend trips. From Dallas there's Athens Scuba Park; http://www.athensscubapark.com/ and if you haven't been and seen what's there it's fun. At Terrell there is Clear Springs Scuba Park; http://www.clearspringsscubapark.com/ Terrell is a better choice, deeper, colder and with real fish! Lake Travis (Austin) offers some good diving at a couple of locations, Windy Point and Mansfield Dam. Obviously lakes are still pretty cold right now and our first "lake weekend" is April 23rd at Athens. I'll be wearing the 3mm and the 5mm over the top, hood and gloves!
I know there are loads of TX divers as we meet them all the time on our travels - maybe they're just shy. What Texicans, shy????
