I don't know but I can narrow the universe for you.

In each issue of Barrons there are two pages of closed end funds. The bond funds are divided into sections. Look at the section of high yield funds. In this week's Barrons I count 37 of them. The return over the past 52 weeks for each of them is conveniently given for you, as well as the premium or discount to net asset value at which each is traded.
One of those would be the biggest. I might prefer the one with the most liquidity, which would be the largest number of shares traded.
You could plug in the symbols for each of the 37 and get information about each. Not an impossible task.
Best wishes, Chris

In the upper left hand corner you can do searches on different criteria. When you find one that looks interesting, key in the symbol and you will get all kinds of info on it.

Here is another good site for CEF's
