Destination 2- JJJ Private Farm (Greene County, GA)
JJJ Private Farm
JJJ Farm is located in Greene County, GA approximately 100 miles from Atlanta and consists of a 600-acre farm with a 7-acre lake. The lake is stocked and managed to support a healthy population of F1* largemouth bass with some weighing up to 10lbs. These F1’s are extraordinary for many reasons including their large size, fast growth rate, vivid colors, and beauty. The real attraction is in the tug and strength when you feel the bass hit with lightning speed as you set the fly. These bass pull every bit as hard as a red fish and can turn the driftboat when they make their initial run.
The setting on the farm is exquisite. With manicured grounds and crops that cater to the furry friends that are native, you are likely to see some special creatures wandering the grounds while fishing.
*The term F1 is used in the scientific community to denote the offspring resulting from the mating of two different species. In this case, F1 refers to the breeding of the two recognized subspecies of largemouth bass: Florida bass, Micropterus salmoides Floridanus, and the northern bass, Micropterus salmoides.
This outing is recommended for more advanced casters and anglers. You must be able to make longer casts with streamers and jig patterns. We normally use 6-7 weight rods with sink tip lines. We practice catch and release for all fish over 13 inches. Everything under 13 inches will be kept, and you are welcome to take them home with you.
The trip includes lunch, snacks, drinks, equipment (7 weight fly rods), flies and transportation to and from Atlanta. The cost is $500 with a maximum of 2 anglers.
This trip is available from January 2 - March 14 and May 16 – August 31 only.
