Now open for fishing near Williamston, North Carolina
Currently taking bookings for April onwards
No fishing license required
Big Bass Fish Farm is located on a privately owned lake near Williamston, NC, with 1.4 miles of wooded shoreline. The lake is intensively managed for the production of hybrid striped bass, largemouth bass, black crappie and bluegill.
We maintain a heavy forage fish population to ensure maximum growth of largemouth bass and hybrid stripers. Supplemental feeding allows for a perpetual harvest of 1,500 pounds of fish per month without depleting the inventory. Our goal of maintaining stocking density of 1,000 pounds of fish per acre allows us to guarantee you a memorable fishing experience. If you don’t catch 20 pounds or more of fish in a 4 hour trip, the trip will be on us! That’s right, no charge unless you catch a lot of fish. We are that confident that you will have a great trip.
The rates for 4 hours of guided fishing are $195 for one person, and $295 for two people. April special: parent and one child under 16 for $195.
Fishing times are 7 - 11 AM, 11:30 AM - 3:30 PM, and 4 - 8 PM. Big Bass Fish Farm is a licensed fee fishing lake. No fishing license is required.
Largemouth bass and bluegill fishing are catch and release only. Other species may be kept with no limit, at an additional cost of $6.00 per pound. Any injured fish that will die must be kept and paid for. We encourage the use of single barbless hooks or circle hooks if you don’t want to take fish home. We can supply some fishing lures for you to use.
The lake is located 1 mile from the Hampton Inn, 2 miles from the Days Inn and Econolodge, 4 miles from the Holiday Inn Express, and within 3 miles of at least ten restaurants. The Bob Martin Eastern Agricultural Center is 4 miles away. If you are planning to be in the Williamston area on business, or for an equestrian event, what could be better than taking a half day for bass fishing on a beautiful private lake?
