About Pond King

Pond King started off providing pond management services in 1995 

Pond King Inc. started offering lake and pond management services and fish stocking in 1995 and has continued to grow since that time. 


We take great pride in our lake management and fish stocking services that have formed the foundation of our business. We maintain the best equipment for the job, to ensure that the customer is getting their money’s worth. We offer a wide array of services including consulting, lake surveys, vegetation treatments, clearing muddy ponds, and water quality management. Each lake management service is available individually or set up as a monthly maintenance contract.

When it comes to following up with fish stocking recommendations, whether it’s just a few fingerling catfish or stocking an entire lake with bass, we have you covered. When you purchase fish from Pond King you’re also getting the expertise that comes from years of lake management experience with Texas waters. We know what size and species combinations work the best. We don’t sell you the fish we have, we get you the fish you need.

Our Fish Barn, located just west of Gainesville, Texas, is one of the largest fish retail outlets in North Texas. We carry up to 20 species of fish in a variety of sizes throughout the year. No need to worry about catching the fish truck next time, just give us a call to see what's currently in stock, set up your pick-up appointment, and then come by our location to pick-up your fish. Larger orders can be delivered to your property with guaranteed satisfaction. We take our time acclimating your fish to eliminate any loss resulting from the initial transfer. We offer bulk pricing and free custom quotes to fit your needs.

Pond King designs and manufactures a variety of products for ponds, lakes and fisheries around the world 

We also manufacture several originally designed products, such as Mini Pontoon Boats, Floating Docks, Artificial Fish Habitat, Fish Feeders, Turtle Trap, and Duck Blinds. We ship our Pontoon Boats all over the Country, and even have gone as far as Alaska! We can ship our floating aluminum docks just about anywhere and you can see examples of our installations on some of the prettiest lakes and ponds in Texas and Oklahoma.

As Pond King has grown, we have maintained our primary goal of producing quality products and services for the outdoor enthusiast that will stand the test of time.

The quality of our products reflects our commitment to build each and every one with a sense of pride. Here at Pond King, we measure our success with a square and a level, not the bottom-line. Our products are designed to give the customer a lifetime of use.

Our Mini Pontoon Boats, Floating Docks, Fish Habitat, Turtle Trap, Fish Feeders, and Duck Blinds are all built right here at our facilities. This gives the customer the opportunity to view the fabrication process and recognize the effort and the quality materials that go into each product we make. You can walk through our displays to determine what size and options meet your needs. For our long distance customers, we offer a full refund of the purchase price of any of our products if you are disappointed in any way upon delivery. We stand behind everything we sell because we built it.

Pond King's tackle shop - Lake Pro Tackle

Lake Pro Tackle by Pond KingIn 2015 we opened Lake Pro Tackle Shop in Gainesville, TX and in April of 2020 we put it online. Our motto for our tackle store is "We don't carry everything...just the good stuff!" Come by our retail store and you'll find a reel bar with over 75 reels from top brand manufacturers; a bulk worm bar with over 500 bins filled with premium plastics at half the cost; as well as several aisles of fishing tackle from brands you know and love, and several brands you can't find everywhere--all at warehouse pricing! If you haven't been here yet, you're missing out. You'd have to drive a long way to beat our selection, prices and customer service. 

The vision that drives Pond King

The best times are spent down at the pond. Since I was old enough to hold a pole, I have enjoyed fishing small ponds and lakes. Nothing beat a Sunday afternoon fishing with Dad after collecting the required jug of grasshoppers or can of worms. It was no surprise to my parents that I later pursued a degree in Wildlife & Fishery Sciences at Texas A&M University. I have my own family now and some of the best times are spent down at the pond. That’s why I have built my business around the family experience of fishing in small ponds and lakes.”
