Best Bass Lakes 100 Best Bass Lakes of 2013 It's time to update the ol' bucket list with Bassmaster Magazine's second annual listing of the top 100 Best Bass Lakes in the nation. Posted on November 18, 2013 Photo: B.A.S.S. - Bassmaster Magazine's second annual listing of the best fisheries in the nation is here. The list of the top 100 bass lakes for 2013 was developed by consulting state agencies on catch rates, population studies and stocking schedules for all the fisheries they managed. From there, we sent the list to B.A.S.S. Nation presidents and conservation directors to rank each of these bodies of water based on the tournaments they held. And then we had a panel of Elite Series pros, outdoor writers and industry professionals finalize the lakes list and rankings. Finally, we asked you. Over 3,500 B.A.S.S. members offered their opinions and rankings regarding their region. We hope you enjoy the 2013 list, and be sure to let us know what you think in the Facebook comments below.
