Marina friends and family - you'll find that this blog is JUST FOR YOU. Bait and tackle needs, lake level, lake regulations, boat safety and maintenance, fishing updates, navigation concerns, and anything Lake Ouachita or marina-related, you'll find right here in this feed. Look each Monday for something new from Marina Staff and Marina Manager, Todd Gadberry. You won't miss a single fishing report - distributed several times monthly, or a Marina Monday weekly post.
From Todd Gadberry, Manager of Mountain Harbor Marina - and long-time lake/fishing/boating expert on Lake Ouachita's Waters:
"We want to say “hello”! Stop in and support your local bait shops and tackle stores. Large chain stores and online ‘giant’ suppliers like Wal-Mart and Amazon may have a bigger selection of products and slightly lower pricing, but they won’t have the area specific tackle that you will need to do a little “catching” as well as a memorable fishing outing on a local water source. Your local dealers will have the goods you need for a memorable trip and will give the ever missing “service” that you will not find in the bigger arenas. If you ever have used live bait, your best bet for finding it is at a smaller dealer rather than a big chain store. Local bait and tackle stores will also have the information you need to make a trip successful because they have the information you need to catch fish on that waterway. Your business is very valuable to the local bait shops and we truly enjoy the opportunity to serve our “guests”!
Before you go ... remember that Fall Fishing on Lake Ouachita is at its best! Assitant Marina Manager, Darry Hanson, took an excellent photo gallery of a recent catch at the hands of our premiere Harbor Fishing Guides (Jerry Bean, Chris Darby, and Mike Wurm - offering guided tours daily!).
