Kids of all ages love the thrill of catching one of these powerful fish, whether it is their first or their hundred and first. They will beg you to bring them back again. This is an ideal way to get a kid started fishing. Our staff is always close by to to help out, or just give you a few pointers. They will even clean your fish for 75 cents each, and give you some recipe tips. All this for just $6.99 per pound.

Along with this fee you are allowed to take home a limit of 2 Trout, 2 Bass, 2 Northern Pike, 2 Walleye, 2 Catfish, 10 Panfish (Crappie, Bluegill, Perch) . That is 20 fish combined!! The largest fish caught in each of these categories for each season will win a free season pass for the following year.
