I went to Chap's for the first time last month (May 2012) and I caught several fish: bluegill, bass and four catfish. The property was clean; there is plenty of shade if the sun is hot and the lady working in the office was very pleasant. The ad reviews here must have been written by someone who used to be an employee (and they got fired) or by someone who doesn't know how to catch fish (because you really don't have to try hard to catch fish at Chap's).

been fishing there many years. will not go back. they claim they stock weekly but after trying ALL kind of bait and not taken a fish out of there for the last 3 times have got to wonder.you would think the little fish would bite. not one.Last visit was today,6/21/11. my son and I spent 5 hours there and none of the poles had a bite of any kind. You do the figuring. Any fisherman at all can tell you what the problem is.the guy told me today that they were trying to turn the business around but you cannot prove it by me.they never had any food to sell but 3 bags of chips. what a deal.

It is 18 dollars to fish but when ever i catch fish i am happy so see ya Sunday i'll be there bright an early. The fish in the pic is of the 23 pounder i caught there this year.

Lets start out with the good the place is VERY nice and well maintained not trashy at all the bad is that I have been there 3 times from 19:00-02:00 and have caught nothing. I am not a green horn when it comes to Catfish but if I go to a pay lake I should at least get foot long cats on my line instead I get nothing but skunked Everyone I talk to says the same thing the only guy to catch anything there is the guy leaving comments above and according to him everyone in his party catches fish even the kids. Not in my experience. There are three of us that go and only one fish between us and we tried everything in the way of baits. I will tell you this I wish the fishing was better I would be there every weekend but I think I will save my money and drown worms in my pool. I will get the same result and be money ahead.
