This was a great outing for us to take our 3 year old toddler. They provide the fishing poles, basic bait, and a bucket and rag. No need to bring anything but yourselves. Granted, the poles are little worn from use and the bait was corn and fish roe, but we made out just fine. We caught three fish in about an hour and a half, which is all we wanted--careful though because the fish WILL jump out of the bucket! They offer worms for an additional price if you want to have more action. It's really a pretty simple deal. They clean them for free, and for a $1 more you can have them filleted (we did). This made baking them very easy. And, yes, they tasted very good! Besides this, communication via email was extremely helpful and timely. I would recommend this to beginning fishers and families with kids.

We went with my 8&10 year old. Their great grandmother was able to watch. We were able to catch several fish. My son caught his first fish. Staff gave my daughter advice. We had a good time and was reasonable priced

Overall experience was good. Office staff was friendly but didn't offer a whole lot of assistance. They recommended which pond was biting, handed us the worms and poles and disappeared. We did catch a lot of fish and had a great time. Fish cleaning and filet services were fast and friendly but don't expect a lot help, not that there is a lot to figure out. My kids actually had a great time, we caught 11lbs of trout, they cleaned and filleted the fish, packed on ice. Advice, bring your own drinks and food if you wish, there is none of that for sale…..they could probably make a ton of $$ if they did sell drinks though. There is shaded area to fish from, but it was a bit warm when we were there.
