Frequently Asked Questions
Our mission is to connect families with unique fishing experiences, the community, and each other. One of our many passions is getting our youth outside, engaged with the outdoors and learn to appreciate nature. Additionally, we are geared to the enthusiastic angler that enjoys fishing at various water holes.
Our offerings of private ponds and lakes are under fished, secluded, private, and make for a great experience for the family or avid fisherman/woman. Specifically, parents can teach their children to fish without the hassle of crowds and drive to public lakes. Children are more likely to catch fish frequently at an under-fished pond than going to a public lake. And if kids catch fish, they will want to continue to fish!
Our marketplace is also great for the passionate angler. Frequent fishermen and fisherwomen enjoy the thrill of fishing at new water holes.
Private ponds are quiet, peaceful and under-fished. Friends and family reserve the entire pond/lake for a designated time and have the entire space to yourself. Plus, when you stay close to home, cost of travel decrease and your funds stay in your local community.
Pricing of our ponds are based upon a number of factors, such as, the size of the pond/lake, the variety of fish, catch/keep, catch/release, availability of the pond, and finally the pond owner’s requirements.
