Dixon Lake, California--There are lots of reasons why this relatively small water supply reservoir has produced 4 of the top 15 largest bass of all time, including Mac Weakley's recent 25-pound leviathan. According to rangers who work there:
1: The lake has an exploding population of bluegills.
2: The City of Escondido dumps monthly helpings of 3,600 snack-sized rainbow trout into it from November through May.
3: And each spring hatches of ducklings and cootlings provide a high-protein feast for big bucketmouths.
