Whats the best lake to live on in Texas for bass fishing?

Big fish?
Numbers?
Lake holds water?
Close to other lakes?
Year round fishing?

Holbrook, Fork, Athens or any east texas lake. I love east texas and going to move soon.
My son wants to live on Fork but I don't think he would ever come home. He would be fishing 24-7.

Cypress Springs or Bob Sandlin are perfect but Cypress gets my vote. I've had a weekend place out there for going on 7 years now and the lowest the lake has been during that time is about 3 feet low vs Sandlin's 8-9 feet low. It's a really pretty lake for being in NE Texas. You can always catch good numbers for the most part out there because the spots are huge in numbers on that lake but you can also catch quality. The crappie fishing can also be off the hook at times with BIG crappie. Bob Sandlin is next door, Monticello is 10 min away and you can be at Lake Fork Marina in 35-45 minutes depending on what part of the lake you live on.

Mid lake T Bend. That lake is equal to several lakes and 30 minutes to Rayburn. Upper end gets you near all the East Texas directory of lakes. South end gets you within easy driving to the south Louisiana coast and the best coastal fishing in America.

Private lake, owners only and some incredible fishing

T Bend is under legal mandate to keep water level no more than 6 feet below pool. (I think it is 6')

Athens sure would be hard to beat!

A hour away from about 10 different lakes.

Athens gets my vote. Nice homes, nice town, great lake, and a quick drive to other lakes.
