ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Two East Texas lakes ranked second and third on Wired2Fish.com's 2015 Top 20 Largemouth Bass Lakes list.
When the fishing Website's editors compiled their list of the "very best largemouth bass fishing lakes in the entire country," Sam Rayburn Reservoir was ranked No. 2, and Toledo Bend Reservoir was ranked No. 3.
The No. 1 lake in the country was Lake Guntersville in Alabama.
"A lot of professional anglers believe this will be the best lake in America next year," the Wired2Fish.com article stated. "Even in the hot summer months, it continues to produce both quantity and quality for anglers. It takes huge weights to win tournaments on this lake, and 10-pounders are caught with amazing regularity."
The article stated that Sam Rayburn offers anglers both shallow and deep bass fishing opportunities and that the lake is full of big Florida-strain largemouth bass.
"It's been a famous fishery for quite some time, but several years ago, it fell out of recognition," the article stated. "In the last couple of years, however, it has turned into a world-renowned fishery that's well worthy of its praise."
Toledo Bend was described as "another excellent Texas lake." The Wired2Fish.com article stated that the lake gets pounded by fishing pressure because "it's the land of the giants."
"A unique blend of grass and offshore structure continuously produces huge largemouth and 10-pounders are actually quite common throughout the entire year," the article stated. "In the spring months, you'll start seeing the elusive 'teener' bass show themselves in the shallows.
