Hey, me and several friends are headed to NE OK to do some catfishing next week. I believe that we are staying in Grove. Hopefully most of our time will be spent catching and cleaning fish, but in case we have any rainouts, is there anything in the nearby area that a guy should check out while he is in town?

This will be our first time on this lake. Most of the other guys have been going to AL for the last ten years or so, but they were ready for a change of pace that would be a little closer to home. We're all from between Jefferson City and the Lake of the Ozarks. I've pig hunted in Okemah several times, but haven't been to OK for a few years. After a little reading in your tacked threads and some of the links, it sounds like my MO CCW license should have me covered?

Thanks Wingman. It looks like there is a chance of some isolated thunderstorms on Monday, so I might have a chance to go check out some custom hotrods or the village.

Other than that it looks like pretty clear weather next week, so with a little luck we'll be on the water more than anything!

I've been looking around on OK's Dept. of Wildlife site and I believe that all I need is a 2014 NR Fish 6-Day permit that sells for $35.00. When I was researching the lake I was under the impression that the lake is under the control of some type of utility.

I just wanted to see if anybody in the OKHTF could confirm that I shouldn't need a 2014 Wildlife Conservation Passport or a 2014 NR Land Access (Honobia Creek/3Rivers WMA) license to fish on the Grand Lake 'O the Cherokee's?

Anybody chime in with additional info if they have it.

Looks like we may be required to have our boats inspected by GRDA? I pulled this off of your GRDA link: "All boats kept or operated on GRDA lakes shall be inspected by GRDA’s Police. A safety inspection sticker shall be placed on the port front portion of boat. This is a free inspection."

ETA: I shot an email over to OK Wildlife Dept. with all the questions above just to be sure.

Thanks for all of the links and help.

Hey, just wanted to thank you all for all of the advice and links. Our group had a good time fishing. The guys crappie fishing were getting close to their limits every day. The catfish jugging wasn't as good as we hoped it would be though. Either way, a slow week of fishing beats the hell out of a great week at work.
