Fish Farm

The Fish Farm was the private honey hole of the late Jim Copeland co-owner of B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society), and has been carefully cultivated as a trophy bass fishery for the last 13 years. The Copeland family has meticulously implemented an aggressive fish management plan, and have achieved great results through diversity of forage, fish habitat, harvesting, and the introduction of high quality diverse bass genetics.

For the Copeland's closest friends and family this 163 acre property was their playground. Their great love for fishing and the outdoors is seen on every inch of this fisherman’s paradise. No expense was spared to ensure this was, and is, one of the highest quality fishing properties not only in South Carolina, but the entire Southeast.

There are 8 ponds and lakes on the property and over 40 acres of surface water. Each pond is unique and is purposely built for the fisherman. The ponds have been stocked with pure Florida genetic bass, as well as F1 bass, with much higher top end potential than northern bass. There are literally bass in these waters that can tip the scales in excess of 10 pounds!!

Surrounding the main lake are 4 large docks, multiple fish feeders, bottom diffused aerators, and even a boathouse with an all-electric bass fishing rig for silent operation. Each additional pond has multiple fish feeders, bottom diffused aerators and are ready for action.

The Fish Farm has been fished by world-class fishermen from around the globe including the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame inductee Gary Yamamoto, co-owner of B.A.S.S and former Time Warner Executive Don Logan, and many other prominent figures.

I have visited the Copeland’s Fish Farm many times over the past 10 years. It is not only a place that has tremendous bass fishing in several of the ponds, but also is a piece of property for the entire family to chill out and have fun.
The fishing at the Copeland family property in South Carolina was one of the best fishing experiences I have ever had. The ability to not only fish from the boat, but also just fish from the bank and catch trophy size bass was an experience I will remember for a long time.
We manage numerous outstanding fisheries across the eastern United States, and very few have paid attention to detail as Jim Copeland did at his Fish Farm. The intensive management plan implemented the last several years has paid off with an outstanding and diverse fishery on this unique piece of property. It is a special place.
