Some are known for the type of structure and baitfish they have.
Others are known for serving as the sites of some of the greatest moments in professional bass fishing history — and one of those from that latter column has been chosen as the home of next year’s GEICO Bassmaster

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — High school and college anglers will be competing during prime fishing times on some of the premier bass fisheries in the country during the 2017 Costa Bassmaster High School Series presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods and Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops tournaments.
Both high school and college schedules feature bass fisheries that have hosted various Bassmaster tournaments throughout the years, according to Hank Weldon, B.A.S.S. College and High School Series senior tournament manager.
“One of the cool things we are doing with some high school tournaments is going to locations like Toledo Bend that have hosted Bassmaster events for multiple years,” Weldon said. “We are also going to Chickamauga Lake in Tennessee and will partner with Fish Dayton, which is familiar with big events. We expect a very, very large field there with the High School Southern Open again.”
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Bass anglers hoping for a spot in the 2017 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens tournaments will soon be able to apply, B.A.S.S. announced today. Registration opens for members of the B.A.S.S. Nation and Lifetime members of B.A.S.S. beginning on November 8.
New this year in registration for the Opens is the ability of pro anglers to “link” with co-anglers during online signup. Like other pro-am events, Opens participation is limited to an equal number of anglers and co-anglers. By “linking” or ensuring the participation of a co-angler, anglers can improve their odds of getting into the tournaments.

"On the second day of the 2016 Missouri State Championships at Lake of the Ozarks, on October 16, 2016 it was a beautiful day, highs were in the mid 80’s and people were out enjoying the day getting some final cleanup work done in their yards and docks. I was fishing with Jeff Sell of the Leavenworth Bass Club on a long stretch of docks just off the main channel, I had just put my second keeper in the boat as we were talking to a gentleman whom working on his boat before he had to winterize it. When I heard someone crying, as I was looking around to find out where this was coming from, I had noticed a lady, possibly in her mid 60’s, in the water. She was fully clothed and seemed to be struggling, I told Jeff that I think this woman is hurt and can’t get back on her dock. We threw the rods on the deck, yelled at the gentleman working on his boat that his neighbor is hurt and sped her way with the trolling motor on high, as she was only 3 docks away."
