Yates place is a true trophy bass fishing Lake. This 25 acre lake is for the fisherman looking for that one "big bite". There have been 3 fish over 13 lbs and dozens of fish over 10 lbs caught in the past several years. The landowner lives on site and is very active in fish management practices; stocking copper nose bluegill, threadfin shad and Tilapia. These bass are simply fat and healthy. In order to maintain the health of the fishery a strict slot limit is enforced, you MUST keep all bass 14 inches and below. If you do not want to clean the fish simply leave them in the live box hanging off of the dock and report the amount of fish removed from the lake to the club office.

The property is perfectly manicured and has a concrete drive all the way to the lake. Included in the day fishing rate is a 15ft fully decked boat with pedestal seating,trolling motor and batteries. If there are more than 2 or 3 in your group there is an additional buster boat for members to use. You will need to bring your own trolling motor and battery for the 2nd boat. Outside boats are permitted and launching should be easy. However, be careful when launching as not to tear up the property.
