Where would you bass fish the rest of your life?
by: James Strawbridge 10/10/2013
If you had to choose one place to live (in the U.S.) and fish for bass the rest of your life...where would it be?
My Choice would be Decatur Alabama. Some of the best bass lakes in the country are there, like Lake Guntersville, Wheeler lake, Logan Martin, and Neeley Henry. Not to mention lakes like Table Rock Lake only 8 hrs away, and Lake Chickamauga in Tennessee. I would have a house on a lake with my own private dock, a 21' bass boat with all the goodies, and fish with not a care in the world. I guess it's alright to dream every now and then. Listen to me.....it's not even winter yet and I'm acting like I do in February when serious cabin fever kicks in...lol! It's going to be a long winter!
So lets hear it! Where you would like to spend the rest of your days bass fishing!

If'n it was me, it wouldn't be bass, rather I'd pick a gulf coast area with good redfish populations.

In the US or anywhere? Oviachic, El Salto, etc. are far better producers than Florida Cali etc. Texas would be my vote in the US. Falcon, Fork, Amistad, to name the super popular ones, but you also have rayburn, murray, lake austin, wako, toledo bend, geeze you can just keep going. Florida is the same with good bodies of water but pure florida strains can get real picky, the cross breeds feed well all year and then with there agressive stocking programs, lunker share program, etc. Yep, Texas!

I guess I'd move to San Antonio/Austin.
There's plenty of fish right there and you need to go nuts Amistad is 3-4 hours away as is Port Aransas with flats fishing and deep sea stuff as well.

Texas or Oklahoma. Less liberal turds in those parts of the country, Alabama would be nice too. I doubt I will leave my beloved Colorado but being a bass fisherman here can get on your nerves real quick!

This isn't good, I'm looking at real estate in Del Rio!! Pretty cheap and pleasent looking really. I have 5 years before I could even think of moving.

Lake Havasu..... or Powell
I know its not Amistad or El Salto.... but pretty scenery and tons of fish.... huge lake woth plenty to explore.... Havasu is just a dream spot for my style of fishing!

Texas....huh! That's funny, that was my other option. Texas has some great lakes. Amistad rocks (hearsay only). All this talk makes me want to go on a road trip with the boat and make a big loop from Colorado...through Texas, over to Alabama (and hit Louisiana) on the way, leave Alabama and go to Tennessee, then through Missouri, and back to Colorado. How much money will that cost $10,000....lol!

With all that was stated above--
I would have too stick with Elephant Butte
Res. In New Mexico. This res. contains all 3
species of Bass. Largemouth, Smallmouth, and
Not too mention: the southwestern food is
off the hook!!
