Nelson Lake near Washburn, North Dakota
If you are looking for largemouth bass, you want to make sure you spend at least one day fishing Nelson. The state record largemouth (8 lbs 7.5 oz) was caught here back in 1983. Just because a monster like that hasn't been caught since doesn't mean she isn't hiding somewhere. Bluegills and crappies are also present and both are present in great numbers and sizes.
