Bonneau Ferry WMA Lake

Bonneau Ferry has four lakes, totaling 100 acres, open to adult/youth fishing on Thursday through Sunday from March 2 to October 31, but closed during deer and turkey hunts. This area is an adult/youth only fishing area, which means no adults may fish unless they bring a youth angler who actively participates in the fishing. Each youth (17 years and younger) must be accompanied by no more than two adults 18 years of age or older and must be actively fishing. Quarterman's, Alligator, Hogpen, and New Lakes all provide fishing for largemouth bass, bluegill, and shell-cracker. In addition, crappie, warmouth, mudfish, and gar can be caught in Quarterman's.
