Great but...

I have only gone to the actual Faith Pond a few times and had an ok experience. Even though the security guard showed us a picture of a 5 pound bass caught from there. Although remember that it is private and you have to get permission to fish there. Also remember Fishbrain names an entire area of ponds by just one name and I recommend the prairie ridge ponds.
