This is a unique 202-acre spring-fed impoundment with crystal clear waters near the city limits of Marianna. The lake is accessible off US 90 in Marianna by taking SR 71 north 1.1 miles to SR 164 for 1.8 miles and then south on Hunter Fish Camp Rd. to the ramp. Merritt's Mill Pond was historically known for its trophy redear sunfish (shellcracker) fishing. The pond currently holds the state record for redear sunfish at 4.86 pounds and until recently held the world record fish. While Merritt’s Mill Pond still produces quality redear sunfish, it also produces quality largemouth bass. Casting far from your boat, on cloudy or rainy days or when there is a ripple on the water may produce the best results when fishing in this clear water pond.
