Oxbow Guide Service LLC focuses attention on the oxbow lakes along the Mississippi River from West Memphis, AR to Lake Village, AR for spectacular crappie fishing. Crappie fishing along the Mississippi River is one of the most overlooked fisheries in the United States. In the early part of each year our focus will be on beautiful Horseshoe Lake in Crittenden County, AR where we will use a variety of tactics to catch crappie. According to the water levels in the Mississippi River, we will adjust our fishing to keep clients on the best possible chance to catch crappie. If you have never fished one of these beautiful bottomland oxbows, you will be pleasantly surprised at the natural beauty, variety of fish and the size of the crappie. Come enjoy a day in the beautiful outdoors of Arkansas!
Fishing is primarily done from an up to date fiberglass boat that is fully equipped with the latest technology in electronics to help put you on fish. Tactics will vary from spider rigging, long line trolling, pulling crank baits to single pole jigging. You will pick up tips on techniques that are used or if you want to book a day to go out and completely learn a technique from the boat ramp to catching fish, we can do that as well.
Your guide has 50 years of fishing experience for crappie and has spent most of that time along the Mississippi River.
We also offer a limited number of green timber duck hunts each year (approximately 10-12 days). These go fast! If you are interested in duck hunting in Arkansas' green timber, email us and we will get you set up.
If you have questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

The safety of you and your group are priority. No trips will be taken in any dangerous conditions such as high winds or lightning. Trips will be delayed or cut short if an occasion arises.

If our guide recommends that your trip be canceled, your Reservation Fee will remain in place and you will be allowed to book another day.
Our guide will be the deciding factor about weather or conditional cancelations. Those decisions will be made at the launch site. If the trip is canceled, you will not be charged for that day.
Trips can be rescheduled 10 or more days prior to your trip and your reservation fee will be moved for the day you choose.

All clients are required to fill out our Insurance and Liability form. Once you have booked your trip, the form will be emailed to you. You must have that form filled out and ready to hand to our guide the morning of your trip. If it is not ready, that will be time away from your fishing as we must have that waiver in hand before we get in the boat.
