    I did a search on this and there seems to be some posts hinting at diving lake eufaula, but no hard info. Does anyone have any info for diving the lake? Maybe along the dam, or elsewhere...

    Watch out for the gators. They were gettin bad enough to where the state hosted a hunt on the lake this fall. There were fourteen gators killed, the smallest being 57 lbs the largest was 12ft long and weighed 675 lbs.:11:

    The story is HERE.

    Keep us posted as to how the dive goes.

    Hmmm. On second thought, maybe Ill let the lake be and find somewhere else. I never did like being the guinea pig.

    On second thought, what do yall think about this:

    Georgia State Parks - Florence Marina State Park

    "Florence St Park... an accessible deep-water fishing pier..."

    Who knows what we could find under this peer. Fishmen probably would appreciate it, heh...

    EDIT:

    Nevermind, that ST park is upstream in the river, not the lake.

    I knew it! ;)

    Yeah, somehting like that. Doesnt matter a whole lot. It's too far upstream to even have a chance of good viz.

    I wonder if fishing/diving is allowed off the dam?

    Usually not. I if its a power generating dam its usually illegal to be within 500 feet of the dam.

    I was going to go visit my Grandparents and the closest Lake to the was Eufala and I was curious about the possiblity of diving there. I was warned about the mud and the snakes, not the gators. Thanks for the heads up. I think I will wait until I get back and go to San Diego.

    This photo shows William Simmons kneeling next to a large alligator Sunday, Aug. 26, 2007, in Headland, Ala. Simmons harvested the 12-foot, 675-pound alligator from Lake Eufaula Saturday, laying claim to the record, which had been held for a week by Stockton's John Sutton, who caught a 12-foot, 10-inch, 641-pound alligator on the Mobile-Tensaw Delta on Aug. 19, 2007.

    This years season is coming around in mid-august. Be interesting to see what comes up this year, 40 permits for Lake Eufala and 125 for the Moblie-Tenesaw Delta.

    I have dived at both "Lake Eufaula", the one in OK and the one in AL. I would dive OK again, won't say the same about AL.
