Blue Water Bait & Tackle is a family owned bait and tackle store that carries fishing gear, hunting accessories, and camping supplies. Blue Water Bait & Tackle is owned and operated by Michael and Tina Blackman formerly from Tulsa, now full time Grand Lakers. Our plan is to introduce our new line of crappie jigs called Crappie Glo. Crappie Glo jigs will be a custom tied crappie jig that has a jig head that will glow.
Blue Water Bait & Tackle is a full service tackle shop that is open seven days a week year round to provide Grand Lakers with a variety of fishing, hunting and sporting good supplies. Here at Blue Water Bait & Tackle we sell fishing tackle, several types of live and frozen baits and a variety of fishing accessories and lures. Blue Water Bait & Tackle also carries hunting supplies and accessories for the sportsman who comes here to hunt in Northeast Oklahoma.
Our hope is to constantly carry the latest and most popular fishing gear & equipment, as well as a variety of camping and hunting supplies. Our customers deserve the variety of inventory we carry to supply them with the necessary gear for all their fishing, hunting and camping needs here on beautiful Grand Lake the area that we like to call home. We love the outdoors, boating, camping, fishing and hunting. We love sharing our love of the outdoors with our family and friends. We love to support our community and see it grow. And we love to see that our customers, whether they are residents of the area or if they have traveled from afar to have the most enjoyable time spent here in our community. We purchased the Blue Water Bait in 2005, but Blue Water has been in business in the Grand Lake area since 1984.
Blue Water Bait & Tackle has such a large customer base from the United States and abroad and those customers are always in need of reliable fishing and hunting report before making the trip to our beautiful part of Northeast Oklahoma. So we decided that we wanted to provided them with a site that would not only answers their fishing and hunting needs, but also give them other important information when coming to the Grand Lake area. Whether they are coming just for a visit, vacationing for a day, week or more at a time, planning that all important trip to hunt or fish they would have the latest news and supplies to help them have the best trip possible. With the launch of our newest product the Crappie Glo jig it just seemed like now was the appropriate time to start our new website to provide our loyal customers with just that, all of the newest and the most up-to-date information possible.
We moved our family to the Grand Lake area in 1993. I (Michael) was a certified auto mechanic and my wife (Tina) was working in the banking industry and now sells Real Estate here on Grand Lake and surrounding areas. Where we raised two of our younger sons, Chad and Ethan who have enjoyed the pleasure of growing up in a rural setting where hunting and fishing and boating is a way of life. We also have had the wonderful opportunity to share this experience with our oldest son Jason (currently living in Atlanta, GA) and our two wonderful grandchildren Jenna and Zack. We had lived in the area for a about twelve years when we decided to buy a local business known as the Blue Water Bait and Tackle Store and give it a go. It was already an established business and we have just continued to grow and expand with each passing year. We love meeting all of the different people from all walks of life and from state to state and countries near and far. It’s been a pleasure to serve and be a part of this great small town community. And we hope to be here for years to come.
