This might seem like a dumb question, but.......
The 2004 BASSMASTER Classic is going to be held on a 12, 455 acre lake, they say it has 325 miles of shoreline. Now Pleasant has 14,000 acres but only 45 miles of shoreline. How does a bigger lake have less shoreline? And if Pleasant and for that matter Roosevelt is larger why hasn't there ever been a classic here?

Well, for starters, because Pleasant and Roosevelt are in THE WEST!!! That's like holding a cheese steak competition in New Orleans, or the NBA Finals in Iraq, or claiming Arizona had a gas shortage when I clearly read the Governor's opinion that there was no such shortage. Everybody knows that you only hold a cheese steak competition at the hospital, the NBA finals at the prison, and there was no gas shortage...I saw the Governor herself tell me on the news in Florida. And I'm pretty sure that Arnold will be president before a classic will be held out west. By the way, where is the classic lest I look like a fool?

I dont think they count steep cliffs as shoreline...do they? also, what about islands? do they count? I think the classic is in NC this year.

Another variable is whether we're talking acre feet or suface acres. Acre feet is how much water it takes to cover one acre with one foot of water.

Lake size

According to a technical report produced by the Game & Fish, Lake Pleasant is just under 10,000 acres at full pool.

One reason the lakes have more shoreline back east is because they are built on rivers. so the are narrow but really long.
