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. Hawg Trough Lake is 35 acres and was the second lake built on the ranch in 2004. The current lake record is 12.14; just 4 ounces shy of a share-a-lunker bass. The lake has depths of 18 feet with average depths of 6 to 8 feet. This lake is probably the easiest lake to pattern or to fish and the one we recommend for a group that might have lesser experienced anglers. However, if someone were to ask, which lake, might I have the best shot at catching a 10 lb bass, this one might win that answer. 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 Hawg Trough 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 more than 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 NOTE: You MUST fish the lake that you reserve. You CANNOT drive around the ranch, this is an active whitetail ranch for breeding/hunting. Please, use caution to avoid damaging driving paths.
