Do you love big bluegill?
Go here: www.kingfishersociety.com That is the website for King Fisher Society, which is the only fishing resort on Richmond Mill Lake. You can click around and see the Bluegill Gallery and all the pages and get an idea about pricing. Then email or call the numbers provided.
So to spend that much and catch them all day, that could be considered the value of a lifetime by some. That is certainly their pitch, from what I can determine. The whole thing at Kingfisher is really a large scale, private pay lake. To call it a 'farm' operation wouldn't be a stretch... "catching fish in a barrel" might also apply.
A lot of profitable enterprise went in to what they have there.
That's really okay, too - it's the way the world goes round, after all. I tip my hat to them for their efforts and more importantly - their results.
I feel you Matt - $600 to fish for brim is a little much for my budget.
$600 to fish for fed and pampered "Kobe Brim," well... that's another matter.
Matt, they say that Maison county lake is also a great lake for bass. My brother lives in Fayetteville and he has fished it and says it is a good lake. good luck and tight lines
Hey Vic...I have been following that site for a while and indeed there are some very impressive catches from several of those public lakes.
I will be doing a 'where-to' article for big bluegills and shellcrackers for the 2012 InFisherman Panfish InSider and will include some of those waters that have seemed to stay under the radar.
Many smaller, public waters have boating and entrance limitations that keep overfishing from happening. I do not plan on exposing any vulnerable waters in this article.
