    Top 100 BASS lakes!!

    http://www.bassmaster.com/top-100-bass-lakes

    The state of Kentucky didn't have too many top 100 BASS lakes. They are saying Dale Hallow is the 82 best bass lake. I think that's alittle low!

    It would be interesting to know how they come up with that list. It couldnt have anything to do with weight of Bass being weighed in at tournaments during there prime times of year. I've fished some of those like Lake Mead and Havasu. And don't care if I ever again.
    I would much rather go to Dale Hollow.

    Whoever made that list is either getting paid by someone or they have no idea what they are talking about.

    How in the world did Taylorsville and Guist Creek miss that list?

    Re: Top 100 BASS lakes!!

    It looks to me like they are trying to include a lake from most every state so every angler has something to get excited about. It is also very very difficult to compare lakes. For example, on some of the Northern lakes it is possible to knock out 50 to 200 smallmouth on a good day. 200 smallmouth in one boat at Dale; I doubt it but don't see this as saying Dale is not a very good lake.

    I did feel like the top 20 lakes rated had some merit. I fish Okeechobee, Guntersville and KYL/Barkley. If big bass is the main criteria then Big O and Guntersville are better then KYL/Barkley. That said, I enjoy fishing KYL/Barkley as a body of water 2 to 1 over the Big O.

    Two weeks ago I pulled up on a spot on Barkley and caught fish for 45 minutes, almost on every cast, alternating between a finesse jig and texas rigged worm. Every fish was in the 2 to 3lb range. Big tournament bag- no, but I had a great time all the same. My ribs were bruised from the butt of the rod after setting the hook so often. Just doesn't get much better for me regardless of where I fish.

    and I know this must be a joke. Reminds me of my Dad calling up telling me what great reviews the State Wildlife office gave Cedar Creek. My reply is I'd rather sit at home then combat fish on Cedar; don't care how many big bass life in that lake.

    Is it though to find a spot to fish on that lake?

    Cedar is a small lake, near a big city, where the timber was left standing in most places. On a weekend, you will find too many guys trying to crowd too few spots where the channel comes near the shoreline or a hump. As result, tempers flair up and it becomes an unpleaseant place to fish.
