“Toledo Bend topped as many as 230 potential fisheries to be named the best-of-the-best according to “Bassmaster” Magazine editor James Hall.

“To uncover the country’s top bass fishery, Bassmaster officials polled fish and wildlife departments across the country, hundreds of BASS Nation presidents and conservation directors and the 600,000 BASS Facebook fans to come up with a master list of venues to consider.

After researching data on the Internet, the list of candidates is sent to the 3,500-member BASS Council Panel.

“It’s a very elite group of anglers from across the country who fish a lot,” Hall said. “They helped organize the top 100 into what we felt was a solid ranking. To put an exclamation and polish on the final list, I have a group of about 15 people — kinda of a blue-ribbon panel of industry guys, media and anglers — who fish all over the country, who look it over. Some lakes moved up, some moved down. Everyone signed off on it.”
