A World Class Private Bass and Bream Fishing Lease

Our private fishing lease offers the best action in the state of Louisiana for the entire family. Whether you are an experienced angler or just a beginner, you will not find better action than what Shepherd’s Fishing Club has to offer. If you own a boat or kayak, our 16 acre Ram’s Horn Lake will have you hooked on the best day-to-day action in the country. Conventional or fly fishing is outstanding to say the least. If you don’t have a boat, our bank fishing is top notch. With our eight separate bank fishing ponds, we’ll put you and your family on some fish. With every fishing trip, catching will become a welcome experience. We even have high catch rate ponds specially designed to get children hooked on fishing.

Unbeatable boat and bank fishing for all ages

Selling private leases, guarantees a never crowded fishing experience for the entire family. Your kids and grandkids will catch fish like pros; some easily catching more fish in one day than they have caught in their entire lives. On the best fishing days, two guys in a boat have caught over 100 bass! On some trips, our members have caught ice chests full of bream with some weighing over 2 pounds! Private fishing leases are limited, so act fast to avoid a waiting list. If you would like more information on our exclusive fishing club; please click here.
