Lake Hudson in northeastern Oklahoma is the best bass lake in the state, according to 2008 bass tournament reports.
Wes Watkins was second with Sooner and Eucha tying for third.
Rounding out the top 11 were Lawtonka, Grand, Sardis, Murray, Thunderbird, Arbuckle and Broken Bow.
Even though Arbuckle finished 10th in the rankings, it produced the heaviest five-bass stringer in a bass tournament (28.73 pounds) and the largest bass reported from a tournament (11.55 pounds), according to the report.
The lake produced seven other bass that weighed more than eight pounds, but Arbuckle fell short in the overall rankings because of two categories: average weight of bass and percentage of successful anglers.
The rankings are based on bass tournaments that are voluntarily turned into to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
Five categories are used to determine th rankings: average winning weight in tournaments; average number of hours it took to catch a 5-pound bass; average number of bass caught per hour; average weight of bass; and percentage of successful anglers (anglers weighing in at least one fish).
Arbuckle also was hurt in the overall rankings by the fact it has a 13 to 16 inch slot limit, meaning no anglers at Arbuckle can keep bass of that length, unless it is a spotted bass.
