“There Will Be Fish”

Big Brown Fish & Pay Lakes
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I took 3 boys (ages 13, 9 and 9) who are all novice. We walked in with no equipment and left with 10 fillets. The staff was very helpful and took care of all of our needs. The setting is peaceful. The most unique and cool part of the experience was that there are three separate ponds of varying degrees of difficulty. If you want to spend a lot of time and have a challenge, fish the difficult pond. If you need to get out of there and not have your kids crying because they didnt catch anything, run them to the easy pond and a fish will jump on their hook within 10 seconds. No joke. This activity was a highlight of our trip.

We picked up a brochure for this place at our time share and went on a beautiful Sunday. My daughter caught us dinner! It is $3 for adults to get in, but the kids are free. You have to buy whatever you catch (pay by the pound), but it is nice that you can have the fish filleted for your for $0.50 per fish. So, the price of great fish for dinner, we got a full afternoon of fun. I heard that it is good to be there around 4pm, when the fish are usually fed. We left before that and still took home 5 trout. There is an easy trout pond if you are having trouble and a bass pond that we didn't fish, but I understand is harder. We rented a pole and bought bait on site. We had an easy, relaxing afternoon that even our two year old loved. If you plan to fish the bass pond, bring a chair, but there are picnic tables our the trout pond that we very convenient.
