Charleston, SC – -( Jon Kohler & Associates is honored to offer “Fish Farm”, the private fishing retreat of the late Jim Copeland, former co-owner of B.A.S.S. and global CEO of Deloitte, for $2,199,995.

The property includes more than 40-acres of fishing water, multiple homes, and a three-hole golf course. It is one of the finest trophy bass fisheries in the Southeast and has been fished by world-class fishermen from around the globe including Bass Fishing Hall of Fame inductee Gary Yamamoto. For more info, visit or call broker C.J. Brown at 803-480-1260.

The 163.61 +/- acre complex is located just outside of downtown Orangeburg, South Carolina and about an hour from both Charleston, SC and Columbia, SC. There are eight unique ponds and lakes purposely built for fisherman. The ponds are stocked with pure Florida genetic bass, as well as F1 bass, with much higher top-end potential than northern bass. Surrounding the main lake are four large docks, multiple fish feeders, bottom diffused aerators, and even a boathouse with an all-electric bass fishing rig for silent operation. Bass in these waters can exceed 10 pounds.

“We manage numerous outstanding fisheries across the eastern United States, and very few have paid attention to detail as Jim Copeland did at his Fish Farm,” said Greg Grimes, Owner of Aquatic Environmental Services. “The intensive management plan implemented the last several years has paid off with an outstanding and diverse fishery on this unique piece of property. It is a special place.”

The main lodge is a renovated 1890’s low country home featuring over 2,700 square feet of living space. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a living and dining area, and a finished back porch living space. The guest cottage features 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and back porch views of the lake. The manager’s house is a ranch style construction with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

“I have visited the Copeland’s Fish Farm many times over the past 10 years,” said Don Logan, Retired Chairman & CEO of Time Warner, Inc. “It is not only a place that has tremendous bass fishing in several of the ponds, but also is a piece of property for the entire family to chill out and have fun.”
