We had a blast. The fish were so easy to catch it felt a bit like cheating. I didn't want to stop but you had to take what you caught. No catch and release allowed. He cleaned and packaged the fish for us.

If you have been fishing on lakes in Florida where is it difficult to catch fish, this is a great place to take kids of any age. We had a blast. The road to get there is a little narrow, so watch out for the school bus.

The good: easy way to create some great memories for young kids. You'll have the freshest trout possible. Really large fillets that are great for eating. Nice and clean place. The bad: it's totally unnatural, like the opposite of how fishing normally is. You have to be creative and figure out how to cast and NOT catch a fish. You... More

We have a 5 year old who has been asking to fish, but we don't have that much experience with it. We saw a brochure for the pond and that they would provide the gear and everything you need. It was a beautiful drive there and we were greeted warmly when we pulled in. We got our poles and bait... More

We where only there for a little while because it's crazy easy to catch your fish. The pond is not a catch and release, you catch it you own it. They charged 4.49 a pound and will fillet your catch for a dollar a fish. They provide a pole, bait and a bucket for $2 per person. We walked away... More

We tried to fish in the rivers and didn't catch anything so we went to Coopers Creek. They were so nice and helpful and explained everything with patience and genuinely wanted us to have fun and catch fish. Within 5 minutes we caught our first trout. We ended up catching 6 and had to stop (because you have to pay... More

We fish salt water where we are from, and were reluctant to try this, but it was more challenging than expected and the fish are huge. We were there 1.5 hours and got 6 fish, everybody was very helpful and it was a beautiful site. Figured if we had gone out with a guide to local waters we would have... More

Went there today based on previous reviews. They where right on. We got there and 5 minutes later everyone had a rod on hand. Lots of fun and easy catch for the kids. Extremely attentive and personable staff. Reasonable price based on what we caught. The staff proceeded to clean our fish and one hour later we had them on... More

Owners came out and talked to us about the farm. We were hoping to fish but they weren't open when we went. Nice place and I am sure it's fun to do.

Catching fresh trout is easy! Have the staff clean your fish and then go to the local park and use a grill to cook it! Fresh and Delicious. Staff very helpful and accomodating
