There is a good catfish pay pond south of Macon on Hwy. 41 between Byron and Centerville. If you are traveling south on Hwy. 41 the place will be on your right and there is a big sign out by the road in front of the owners house. The house is between Dunbar road and White Road but closer to White road. My dad takes all the grandkids there when he wants to make sure everyone catches something. I can't remember how much they charge per pound. Make sure you take plenty of $$$ though. They have "you catch it you keep it" (no catch and release) policy and the fish are big. My dad routinely pays $120-$160 every time he fishes there. Last family fish fry we had last spring, all the catfish came from there and all the crappie from Oconee and Sinclair.

Went out to this pay pond Saturday Morning (5/5/12) and had a great experience. I have been trying to get the wife more interested in fishing so I thought this would be a good way to wind her up!

We got there around 7:30AM and we were the first ones there. It was more like grocery shopping than fishing. We reached my 50 dollar limit by 9:00AM. I never though I would say this but I actually wish the action was a little slower.

The gentleman who runs the place is extremely friendly. I will definitely be back with some of my nieces and nephews!

Here are some relevant details if anyone else wants to go.

Directions above are dead on.
Price is 2.50 per pound.
They also will clean all the fish for a fee.
If you need it they can provide all the tackle, bait, etc. All you have to do is show up!
Hours are:
Sat: 7AM to 7PM
Sun: 1PM to 6PM

The pond is pretty small so it could get pretty crowded in the afternoon I recommend going in the morning.

The owner keeps it stocked with fresh fish from a farm. They were absolutely some of the BEST tasting catfish I have had in a long time. I had for got how good farm raised catfish taste.
