We’re all about shooting here. In the case of the storied largemouth bass fishing at our 30-acre Deer Creek Lake, it’s literally like shooting fish in a barrel. But not just any largemouths, mind you. We’re talking big fish. The lake’s stuffed with strong, hard-charging 10-pound bass that crush surface and subsurface baits and flies alike. Documented catches often exceed 100 fish in a single afternoon. With the help of a guide, you can expect to release between 30 and 50 2- to 5-pound bass in a typical day, proving at Deer Creek Lake it’s far more than fishing. It’s catching.

Created in 2003, you’ll experience the equivalent of a fish factory, with:

  • Florida “F1” hybrid largemouth fingerlings called Tiger Bass®. Guided by leading fisheries biologist Greg Grimes, they grew from 1.5 inches to 3+ pounds in just 15 months—and that was before we introduced gizzard shad in 2007 as additional forage.
  • Varied structure for any technique; flooded timber, underwater humps, islands, drops, ledges, boulders, gravel beds and brush piles all known to hold giants.
  • Ample food, stocked with a staggering amount of forage like 9,000 adult crawfish, 55,000 copper-nosed bluegill, 6,000 red-eared bluegill, 12,000 fathead minnows and 6,000 threadfin shad—all of which were given ample time to reproduce.


All packages are priced per person and require a minimum of 2 people. Each day includes:

  • Guided catch-and-release bass fishing from boat or shore
  • 1 guide for every 2 anglers
  • 1 night’s lodging
  • Afternoon arrival
  • 2 meals at the lodge on arrival day
    • Lunch
    • Gourmet dinner
  • 1 meal at the lodge on departure day
    • Continental breakfast
  • Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres
