Is it any surprise that 2 of the top 10 best bass lakes in the nation of 2019 landed in the great Lonestar state of Texas? Not at all.

Our favorite lake out of this list of best bass fishing lakes in Texas, 2019 is Lake Texoma. Although not first on the list, Lake Texoma offers much more than just great bass fishing. We’ve personally had a great time fishing for striper there, and for those of you who follow us on instagram, you know we love our striper with a little Frank’s Red Hot Wing sauce dipped in Louisiana Crispy Fish Fry seasoning. But beyond that, Lake Texoma is just a beautiful lake to fish in general.
Lake Conroe is another one of our top favorite Texas lakes to fish. We have a love/hate relationship with that one. The Big Bass Tour holds a tournament there every year, here are the results from 2019.
