In fact, the twin lakes ranked fairly high on the list, coming in at sixteenth among the nation's top 100.
The rankings were done with the input of the Department of Natural Resources. Each state was asked to rank its top bass lakes based on electroshock and angler catch-rate surveys.
Secondly, the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation state presidents were asked to rank the top lakes in their states based on tournament results, which narrowed the master list.
Federation National conservation directors were also asked to rank the bass lakes in their states based on access, stocking practices and current health of the fishery, narrowing the list to 100.
Finally, a blue ribbon panel of experts was assembled, including outdoor writers, Elite Series anglers and fishing industry leaders from across the country to organize these lakes based on the priorities of bass anglers.
Also making the list from Kentucky was Dale Hollow Lake.
