Invitation to fish

My name is Jack Jones and I love to eat, catch and raise fish, in that order.

A few years ago I began reading about mercury poison and other pollutions making it unsafe to eat fish caught from local rivers and lakes. I decided to solve that problem by building a two-acre dug pond on a hillside spring site, and building a high terrace around it so no water comes in it except from the springs and rain. I stocked it with bass, bream and catfish. I feed them commercial fish food daily and they are delicious, (four meals this week).

Even with last month’s hard rains, the pond was never muddy. I have raised and caught more fish than we can eat and if you would like to catch the best fish from the best place to fish call me, (229) 327-5353. The pond is less than 15 minutes from Bainbridge, and Cairo, two miles southwest of Climax, and three miles southwest of Whigham, the fish are fun to catch. (Friday and Saturday only from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.).

P.S: Note to Jack Wingate, the location is 100 yards due west from our old Kelly Creek swimming hole (Circa. 1940).

Thanks, Jack Jones
