GROVE — Oklahoma’s top bass fishing lake could be on its way to being even grander — with bigger bass.

Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation biologists on Tuesday brought a second stocking of pure Florida-strain largemouth bass to Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees as part of a plan to create a population of more aggressive and hearty “F-1” bass.

Earlier this month the department stocked about 400 pure Florida-strain bass about 10-12 inches long. This week the department added another 850 in the 12- to 14-inch range. Several dozen more retiring Durant Hatchery brood-stock that will weigh 6 pounds or more will arrive in days to come, according to Josh Johnston, Wildlife Department northeast region fisheries supervisor.
