Since 2012 Bassmaster Magazine has published the annual 100 Best Bass Lakes, which also appears here on Bassmaster.com. Fans have loved it, and some have certainly criticized our choices. This year, we've incorporated some of that feedback and changed the formula for the Top 100. We'll start things off with the Top 10 Best Bass Lakes. Next week we'll present the top 25 lakes from each of the following four regions – West, Central, Northeast and Southeast. It's still 100 lakes, but now, readers will see the Top 25 lakes closest to them. This also creates four No. 1 regional fisheries. For now, enjoy the Top 10 Best Bass Lakes, and starting next week don't miss the regional selections.
