    I know it's early but any of you guys noodle in any of the Tulsa area Lakes? Skiatook, Keystone, Arkansas River, Hominy Creek, or Bull Creek? I live over in Skiatook and use to do a little down in Stroud area when I was 10 to 13 years old haven't been in years but would like to give it a try again.

    Dave, welcome to the BOC/SOC :cool2:, best catfishing site on the web! Be sure to check out the library, a lot of good info in there for just about everything except noodling.

    Thanks guys and yes we love the Skiatook area. We have lived in Cleveland, Prue and Hallet areas as well. I know the Arkansas side of Keystone pretty well for trot lining and just pole fishing but have not done any Noodling since I was a teen. I am hoping Skiatook Lake or the tribs coming in have some spots figured I might be able to get a jump start by asking on here but if not I will just go investigate for myself. Anyone that wants to go catch some fun bass I have a little pond up in Skiatook that is killer but they stay unless they are bait fish.

    Here is a pic of one of the medium sized ones

    Hominy creek has some spots. On the back of Skiatook lake there are a lot of large rock formations on the bank I am sure hold fish. But as far as noodleing goes its hard to beat Keystone just outside of Cleveland on the submerged road. I have been told Oolagah is nice as well. We get a few here and there on Birch. I have not noodled in a few years. About as much as I noodle anymore is just the concrete boat ramp on birch near the beach....ans that;s because my son wants to see me do it. It's good for about a 10-20 lb fish a few times a year.

    Thanks Billy I know pretty much where your talking about in Cleveland. Just to the North of Judy Anns and then down there around Bear Creek. I will have to give them a shot. Was not sure how deep they water was. I can see an old road that is submerged up in bull Creek but not sure how deep yet have been scouting the google earth maps to see what I can see. I should be out on Bull Creek this weekend just to see. I forgot all about Birch lake it's just right up the road from us. Thanks again

    Tony anytime man they are always biting something My 4 year old caught a 2 lb one on worm and bobber. The pond has nothing but bass and Sunfish and a few river minnows. I have never caught a cat and I didn't stock it but don't think they are in there. The biggest so far has been 6 lbs or so. Nothing huge but a lot of fun. May put some channels in this summer some small 1 footers would be good ones to start out. I don't want the Bass to go away though so I am a little hesitant.
