    I was wondering who's fishing heated docks,and where.I just found out that Claremore lake has a heated dock now.Are thier any other heated docks in the Tulsa area?If so has anyone been catching anything in them?I'm ganna have to try Claremore's and make a report.

    Got a heated dock, at Lake Hefner, only thing is, that the lake has to come up 2' before the dock is wet again.

    Lets see, at Keystone there is Peir 51. It is on the South side of Highway 51 as you go into Mannford from the Dam.

    Skiatook has Crystal Bay Marina. To get to it take Highway 20 West from Skiatook. There is a big sign on the South Side of the road that will say Crystal Bay. Follow the road back through the neighborhood of ritsy titsy houses. You'll go around a curve to the left and then you'll be on the edge of a switch back that drops down and goes from one hill to the other. Once you come up out of the switchback, you will see the marina. Go into the store at the end of the parking lot, and that is where you will pay for your fishing.

    Claremore has a dock also. Take 20 east from Claremore to Nabatak. Get yer minnows at Nabatak and ask for directions to the lake. Once at the lake, follow the road back to the boatramp and dock. Go into the Guard shack/ranger station and pay for your fishing. Then head on over to the dock. Claremore has a 10 in mimimum for crappie and the cats have a TON of yellow meat.

    I have an n-law that my wife said used to make a tent out of tarps on his pontoon and set a propane heater between him and her brother fishing in the winter time.The would just face the open end down wind.When I get a pontoon someday I'll have that setup.:smile2:

    I've got the itch, but not the ability right now. Have to wait till I get over this bronchitus first.

    As far as catchin fish at Crystal Bay, yep, we have caught a mess there. Crappie, sandies, hybrids, small stripers, and small blues too.

    Caught some small crappie,but they were not biting well.We were only there for about 2.5 hours and I didn't have any livers:sad2: thats usually good for some channels thier.Tried the crappie that I had but to no effect.Water temps on the decline due to thawing ice.Guys at the dock said not much as been biting since the ice storm and the cold snap.I hope to get out there again when it warms up,I'm sure the fish will be hungry.I'll make sure to bring some chicken liver.

    Like I said I didn't get livers,so I didn't catch a cat.I've hooked some huge blues on liver there.Though usually I catch an eater or two.I'll head back as soon as I can get around to it,may be awhile.I'll give you a holler Tdawg before hand.

    Mike, try mixing some cayenne with the livers, or in a home made doughbait.

    There are alot of heated docks up here on Grand lake. Not as many as there used to be but still quite a few. your best bet is just to call around first and find out where they are at. hope this helps you out some.

    What in the world is a heated dock? Never heard of one, and why would you want to heat them? Only for fishing purposes?
