13. Wilson Lake, Alabama
[15,500 acres] This lake is often overlooked by bass anglers, seeing as its better-known sister, Pickwick, is just up the road. Still, anglers need to seriously consider a stop here. It took 29.32 pounds to win an April Fishers of Men event here, and 26.49 took second place. Neither of these teams had big fish of the event, which was a 6.98-pounder. According to the Alabama fisheries department, it is the second-healthiest bass lake in the state, behind Guntersville.
