Hey all! I'm a diver from Shreveport, LA. Spend most of my free time up at Lake Ouachita by Hot Springs, AR doing spearfishing. Started diving in 2003, and am now in my second year as a SSI DiveCon. Looking forward to a trip in 2 weeks to the Texas Flower Gardens, will be my first time! Also going back to dive the Might Oriskany in October. If you havent dove the "O", it should be tops on your list to do, just simply amazing! MBT Divers in Pensacola will take care of you very well. I love Scubatoys.com and am glad that they have this forum.

Welcome to the board! I'm sure I'll dive the Oriskany eventually, since I live in Tallahassee. If you get a chance, go a bit further east and dive some of the springs we have in North Florida -- the water is simply amazing.

Hi and welcome to ST! I've been wanting to go to Lake Ouachita. I've heard that it's a great place to dive.

it is great. Really good place to go when you cant make it to blue water. A good map of the lake really helps when picking out dive sites. Its just a beautiful area.

I'm diving the Flower Gardens this weekend on the M/V Fling; I drive for Freeport tomorrow. Boat depats in the evening. I'll let ya know how it goes.

I called Gulf Diving today, and so far, the word is GO!! I'll check again before heading south from Dallas.
