I am pretty sure every time I go fishing I am paying out at least some small amount if not more! Not familiar with this club or the benefit per $ so have no idea of its value . Will say would consider paying to fish some private areas I know . Think there are a number of owners potentially missing the boat on that deal. As long as the fee were something reasonable say like at or less anally than a fishing license you could make it c&r only and lay down whatever other rules needed to protect the ecosystem and gain extra income for little impact on the natural resource. There are some very nice private waters sitting under lock and key ,and I understand why from the owners point of view . If you just let people in they eventually will trash the place !

My point is that Finneus, the option of fishing pivate lakes that have little pressure. I would love to take a toon on one of those private lakes and have the chance to fish without searching for a bite all day. The fees are a little out there, but its a price you have to pay to havethat previlege. The local waters are far and little without a boat. Yes I could buy a boat, but Id have to pay for storage and why waste that money. Yeah, I justed wanted opinions on if it was worth it or not.... We'll see, I give you a shot if I do make it to one of those private lakes.

I have fished several of their propertys and they immaculate. And the still waters are full of large quality fish. The majority of the fee money goes towards keeping the lakes and ponds stocked on a very regular basis, and up keep of the bathroom facilities. Not to mention several properties offer camping, and hunting options. I am not a member yet, but plan on joining as soon as possible. Its not for everybody, I would recommend talking to a member or two, so that you can be sure that the club has what you are looking for.

Heck Ya TR and yours would be considered 5 star on the scale .be like stayin at the hilton instead of motel 6. As far as that payment goes feel like what it cost me for license and tag less than 100$ annually .There are already murmurings of a nice baitcaster headed your way along with a nice supply of the" stuff that catches bass "next time we get together . Totally sure you could price me right on out and make a tidy sum with the quality of your little slice of bass heaven, Will hope youll give me a break for givin you the idea or give me the job of playin weekend warden or such LOL.Have nothing against the idea of private hunting /fishing clubs and know well and understand the value of well maintained waters that have little to no pressure. I just can't afford hundreds of xtra dollars above the money I currently spend to have that wonderful oppertunity! I have expressed to all the owners of the private areas that I have so graciously been given permission to fish that any home heating or cooling prob /needs or painting needs are parts /materials only at cost labor is free. I sincerly hope I can repay them for their kindness! That is how much pristine private water means to me!" Will work for Bass"

If you include the initiation (6 year) it comes to about 480.00 per year...or 40 bucks per month.....Its not just ponds...we have 20+ prime river locations and you never have to deal with rude fishermen....I stopped fishing public waters when I was shot at by someone who thought I was anchored in his hole....that was it for me..

My family are members because we got tired of the constant combat fishing. We think that it it definitely worth it especially for all the river access you get. Definitely spendy and unless you fish a lot you won’t be getting your money worth. Their lakes and ponds have loads of big fish also. Like I already said our main thing is the space and no crowds.
