14 acres of heaven sit just 2 miles south of the Athens loop. MK Ranch has a lake that has been managed for bass for more than a decade. The lake sits behind two homes who own the lake and the boat house is along the dam. There is aquatic vegetation, trees, laydowns and a creek channel. The lake boasts lots of bass in the 3 to 6 lb range and gives up several fish over 9lb every year. The boat house has a 15 foot pontoon boat with two comfortable seats and a second 12 foot very wide jon boat. You will need to bring your own trolling motor and batteries.


MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 14" and under at this site. Report the total number of each species removed, back to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing.

Take all trash with you. Clean boat of all trash including your used soft plastics.
