CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A national fishing magazine says some of
the top places in the country to catch bass are close to home.
Bassmaster Magazine's 2012 100 Best Bass Lakes in the U.S.
includes the Potomac River at No. 31, and West Virginia's Tygart
Lake at No. 86.
Falcon Lake in Texas was at the top of the list, followed by
Florida's Lake Okeechobee. Lake Erie, which stretches from
Michigan to New York, and is a few hours drive from many of West
Virginia's largest cities was No. 4 on the list.
The magazine asked natural resources officials in every state to
rank their top bass lakes. It also sought input from B.A.S.S.
Federation Nation state presidents and conservation directors as
well as a panel that included outdoor writers and fishermen.
