We had the opportunity to start this lake from scratch. We stocked the lake with red ear sunfish and copper nose bluegill in the Fall of 2017. In June of 2018, we added the finest genetics of pure Florida bass. As of 2021 some of those bass are over 8.5 lbs. We believe a 10+ lb will be caught in 2022.

Since the originally stocking we have added 10’s of thousands of dollars of more bluegill and threadfin shad and we are finally ready to open this awesome fishery.

The lake is an active sand quarry where trucks pick up 25 ton loads of sand on a daily basis. The current lake size is 50+ acres and will grow to 100+ acres over the next 10 years as they excavate more and more sand. We were able to work with the owner to create dramatic humps of rocks and timber that create an absolutely stunning array of fish habitats. There are dozens of brush piles and some that are more than 100 feet long and 30 feet high. Most quarry lakes are not designed for fishing. This lake is different it is laid out for the fisherman and for the fish.

There is a 100 foot long 16-foot wide concrete boat ramp that would be the envy of every private lake in the state.
This lake is a flagship lake for Private Water Fishing, and we need your help to keep it this way. In order to fish here, you must agree to harvest all bass 14 inches and smaller. If you do not like to harvest, we respectfully ask that you fish another one of our fisheries where the harvest is not requested. Remember we are harvesting all bass 14 inches and smaller only.

Fishing Report

Still Plenty of Bass at The Bluffs

William Butler on Jan 04 ,2022

Ryan and I got out yesterday to try The Bluffs again.  The last time we were there, the wind blew and the temperature had dropped significantly the day before.  I think it was 33 degrees last time with 15-20 mph…

The most amazing day in my PWF fishing history and the best birthday present ever!
