Toledo Bend No. 6 in Bassmaster's Top 25 Best Bass Lakes of the Decade

By Bassmaster Magazine

No. 6- Toledo Bend Reservoir

Toledo Bend is No. 6 in Bassmaster's Top 25 Best Bass Lakes list. Something magical happened to this bass factory between the 2014 and 2015 seasons. After avergaing aroung 12th in the national rankings, The Bend took the top spot in 2015 after seemingly countless 10-pounders were caught that year. Even more were landed in 2016, making this Louisiana/Texas border fishery the first lake ever to earn the No. 1 ranking two years in a row.

Production finally fell off a little, but this historic fishery has remained in the Top 4 lakes in the Central Division ever since. Any given day, an angler could land the five-bass limit of a lifetime, as the 30-pound limit is cracked with consistency. And yes, 10-pounders still abound.
