Heading to Lake Ouachita any advise?

We are heading to Arkansas This weekend and staying on the south side of the lake..

Any advise on the lake?

Last time I tried a new lake I did $11k worth of damage hitting a submerged something.....

Quachita is nice. I'm sure there are submerged things but in general, the lake is pretty deep and you just have to stay away from the points. Find an island to dump your extra stuff on during the day and to have a place to chill, eat, and swim. Post some pictures when you get back!

Which area of the lake are you planning on? The only lower unit I've ever damaged was there. Between Thompson's Bend and Mountain Harbor there are some old oaks in deep water. The lake was low though. Get a lake top map and just watch your surroundings.

The lake is very nice though. Table Rock, Beaver lake and Ouachita are all great.

Watch going between islands. Sometimes it may be 100 yards wide and 1 foot deep.
Spent a week there on a houseboat a fews years ago. We went up one of the long arms running north/south to get out of the fat part of the lake to get smooth water. About 30 mintes away is Lake Greeson - its more river like and less prone to rough water. Going back there next week for 5 days!

You shouldn't have any problems around crystal springs. When you come out of the chute, you can go left or right and you are in open water. I would suggest when you come out at the end of the chute make a 180 degree turn back to the left and there is some good calm water in there for skiing. There is also a lot of nice islands up in there to park at. I will be on the north side of the lake across from you this weekend. Have fun!

You must have cut across the long point in front of Mountain Harbor campground.
