Since my brother and I are stuck on the shore for fishing, I don't know if we have a favorite lake - we don't catch many fish. lol
Personally, I keep hearing great things about Tycoon lake down here by Jackson, OH. Allegedly it's being groomed as a trophy bass lake. I've been there numerous times and only ever caught one fish.
I'm starting to like Piedmont as it's one of the closest to me that has smallmouth in it. Been there 3 times I believe and I've caught one smallie.
