Toledo Bend Lake captured fourth best lake to fish in the Central Region of the U.S. according to BASSMASTER. The process to create the rankings takes about three months to complete. Data is received from state fisheries agencies across the U.S. This information is coupled with catch data collected from dozens of tournament organizations across the country for the past 12 months. After the numbers are crunched, a blue-ribbon panel from the bass fishing industry debates the strength of the lakes, then settle on final rankings.
