We speak of the Sooner States showing on Bassmaster magazines second annual ranking of the 100 Best Bass Lakes in America. The results were announced (with baited breath?) late last month.
Landing at the top was some lake in Texas, but who cares, because this is Okie territory were
talking about. Our own Grand Lake landed at No. 17 on the list, followed
by Lake Konawa and Arbuckle Lake in the 29th and 56th slots,
rankings were determined using metrics that included something called
catch rate and shock data, which sounds ominous to those of us who
dont speak angler.
The process is as all-encompassing and data-driven as we can make it, said James Hall, editor of Bassmaster. Our goal is to identify the hottest lakes in the country so fishermen dont have to worry about doing the research.
Hear that, all you gents with floppy hats bearing hooks? You can cease your scholarly researching and just grab your poles.
