CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A national fishing magazine says some of the top places in the country to catch bass are close to home.

Bassmaster Magazine’s 2012 100 Best Bass Lakes in the U.S. includes the Potomac River at No. 31, Smith Mountain Lake in westcentral Virginia at No. 63, the Kerr Reservoir and Buggs Island Lake on the Virginia-North Carolina border at No. 81, and West Virginia’s Tygart Lake at No. 86.

Falcon Lake in Texas was at the top of the list, followed by Florida’s Lake Okeechobee.

The magazine asked natural resources officials in every state to rank their top bass lakes. It also sought input from B.A.S.S. Federation Nation state presidents and conservation directors as well as a panel that included outdoor writers and fishermen.
