Do you want to fish the 10 best bass fishing states? Prepare to put a serious dent in your frequent–flyer miles. You will have to cover over 9,000 miles traveling from the West Coast to East Coast and fishing everywhere in between.

Your trip would begin with flying off to California. It’s the only West Coast state to be on the list. California is the one state where you have an opportunity to catch a world record largemouth, spotted bass or trophy sized smallmouth.

From there it’s on to the East Coast stopping in New York and Florida. Smallies have an unquenchable appetite once the ice out happens in New York. While waiting for the thaw grab your gear and fly down to Florida for giant largemouth spawning.

The journey would also take you to Michigan out on Lake Erie for some of the best smallmouth fishing anywhere. However, from there it all goes south to Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas. All states having an extended growing season for maximum growth.
