Now that things are finally starting to cool off some, it's the perfect time to head to the mountains and do a little camping. It's looking like the weather will be around the mid-sixties and even in the mid-fifties for the next several days and weeks so there's plenty of time to get out there and enjoy it.
This has to be one of the most bizarre, crazy, and messed-up murder cases in Oklahoma history! This past weekend the OSBI arrested and charged an Oklahoma man for murdering his friend. So what's so weird about that? He killed him while they were noodling because he thought he was summoning Bigfoot!
Oklahoma will soon be making some changes to state hunting and fishing licenses. A new bill has overwhelming support from state legislators, so what does this bill do and how will it affect hunting/fishing licenses?
More Oklahoma lakes have been added to the mercury consumption advisory list recently. Seven lakes have been found to have fish with higher levels of mercury contamination so they have been added to the ODEQ (Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality).
Oklahoma's "Free Fishing Days" are coming up this weekend starting Saturday, June 5th through Sunday, June 6th (06-05-21 to 06-06-21). You can fish local and area public lakes, ponds and other places throughout Oklahoma without the need for a state fishing license. It's the perfect time to introduce people, especially kids to fishing and the great outdoors. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation does this every year and it's always a fun family weekend of fishing and spending time together. So if you didn't have any plans for this weekend, you do now! Grab the tackle, poles and head to the water...
Memorial Day weekend is one of, if not the busiest weekends at the lake. Everyone wants to get out of the house and spend some quality time outdoors and hopefully grilling out. It's the perfect place to kick back, relax and enjoy the holiday weekend. Both Lake Lawtonka and Ellsworth will be very popular places to spend Memorial Day weekend this year. If you're planning on a trip to one of Lawton's lakes the City of Lawton has some saftey reminders for you and some general rules you'll need to follow while at the lake. Hard to believe Memorial Day weekend is almost here and unlike last year we'll actually get to go out and enjoy it!
It's starting to get warmer and warmer outside and before you know it we'll be heading to the lakes for some Summer fun. We're actually seeing a Spring this year as temperatures slowly rise. Normally we go from cold to hot with no gradual change, but this year it's been nice to have those 70's and 80's before it gets really hot.
Over the past couple of days the family and I have been planning out mini-vacations and stay-cations for the Spring and Summer months. We've found all kinds of really cool places to go and visit, most are right here in Oklahoma and many are only a few short hours away from home.
It's one small step for man, one giant leap for fishermen! A guy in Australia built a drone to carry him over lakes so he could fish, BRILLIANT! This drone is big enough to carry him, his fishing tackle, poles and of course a cold beer. He even has a cup holder!
