Marshall - Leaky Lake: Heartland 10-10 Ranch
This 2,000 acre ranch has an amazing 4 lakes all 35 acres or larger. Each lake has been managed for trophy bass since their inception. Leaky lake is 35 acres and is the oldest of the lakes; built in 2000. The lake has depths to 28 feet and has produced the largest bass of any of the 4 lakes with a lake record of 14.12 lbs. This lake also produces the most large fish, but can be the most unpredictable lake of the 4 lakes on the Heartland 10-10 Ranch. There are two 18 foot all aluminum boats with live well, foot controlled trolling motors and batteries hooked up and ready to go. Each boat carries 4 batteries and two batteries power the 24 volt system; keeping you on the water all day. The property offers 6 of these boats total. Additional boat(s) can be moved to Home Place Lake based on availability.
Lodging is available and descriptions for lodging can be found under the lodging section. Lodging will require you to place a separate reservation. There are two options for overnight stays on the ranch. Consequently, on times when all 4 lakes are reserved, we will only be able to accommodate 2 lodging groups. However, there are several motels in Marshall; which is less than 10 miles from the ranch. There is a two adult minimum to fish this site. You may fish multiple lakes during your trip, but each lake requires a separate reservation and a separate charge. For example if you want to fish both Homeplace and Beaver Lake in one day, you need to make a AM Reservation for one lake and a PM Reservation for the other lake. Obviously, both lakes have to be available in order to do this. However, the lakes are large enough and have so much cover switching lakes is not necessary; as one lake is plenty of water for a full day of fishing. Just come back and try another lake. If you have a party of 5 or more, you may reserve two lakes. We suggest two lakes that are next to each other.

Please visit our fishing locations to make a separate reservation for your choice of lodging. Please note that lodging can be full and lake access still available. In this case, you may want to make a fishing reservation and stay in a motel in Marshall only 8 miles away.
The Owners Retreat
There are two lodging options while staying at the Heartland 10-10 Ranch. The first option is staying at the home of the owner. When you enter this 3500+ square foot, 5 bedroom home you will be greeted with what I believe to be one of the coolest fish mount of taxidermied largemouth bass I have ever seen. It truly is a must see. There are fourteen 8 to 12 lb bass caught on a single trip by two anglers on a private lake in Louisiana. This home is available only on Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights when the owner is at the ranch and stays in the home with you. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for you to use and it comfortably sleeps 6 people. Two of the bedrooms have two queen beds in each room and 2 of the bedrooms have one queen bed in each room. There is a huge living and dining area with taxidermied mounts from various hunts and fishing trips. You will see 200+ Boone and Crockett deer, moose, peacock bass, largemouth bass, bluegill, bear, and even a wolverine. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a large side by side stainless refrigerator. There is a huge wraparound porch with fire ring, outdoor dining tables for 12, porch swing, gas grill and huge charcoal grill for grilling that 16 oz bone in Rib eye. All linens, towels, utensils ECT... is provided. Wireless internet while slow, after all you are in the country, is available. The living area provides a large TV with all the satellite channels. Other than your food, you need to bring nothing. Lodging is $200 a night for two people and $15 for each additional person.
As the name implies, this is a simple but clean two bedroom trailer with two queen beds in one room and the second room has a trundle bed with two single beds. The trailer sleeps 4 people; 5 if someone sleeps on the couch and 6 people if one can sleep on a cot. There is a full kitchen with everything but a dishwasher. The living area has a couch, recliner and 42 inch flat screen TV with basic cable. Linens and towels will be provided. You are expected to pick up after yourself and leave the trailer cleaner than you found it. Lodging is $100 per night for two people and $15 for each additional person.
