STICK MARSH, FARM 13



ABOUT THE FARM 13/STICK MARSH

Created in 1987, central Florida's Stick Marsh/Farm 13 Reservoir is synonymous with trophy bass and other fishing. This approximately 6700-acre reservoir (3000 in the Stick Marsh and 3700 in the Farm 13 portion), near Fellsmere and Palm Bay, Florida, has been the hottest bass lake in the country during the past decade. Early in its life, it was heavily stocked with fish, both bass and crappie. In a test, some 5000 saltwater Redfish were also introduced. Although unable to spawn in freshwater, the original Redfish population has given up some catches. Jim Porter took a 12 pounder in 1995. Since its opening in early 1990, the Farm 13/Stick Marsh complex has proven phenomenal, to say the least.

Possibly the best bass and crappie angling in the World exists there. At the invitation of the Fla. Game and Freshwater Fish Commission and their Farm 13 Program Manager at the time, fishery biologist Fred Cross, Jim Porter was the first 'civilian' to fish the complex. His job was to "evaluate the fishery from a professional fisherman and writer's prespective". Needless to say, his findings were remarkable!! 10 Crappie at 2.6 pounds; bass in the 15-18 pound range; Sunshine Bass to 10 pounds; Bluegills and Shellcrackers averaging OVER a pound -- a fantastic fishery of World-class proportions.
