BASS FISHING AT CANEY LAKE

Reply
 
Friday night me and fly headed North to beautiful Caney lake for a day of MONSTER BUCKET MOUTH bass fishing.I have never been to Caney but have always herd and read good things about it.After arriving there and looking around a little there is no doubt it's a great place to catch MONSTER BUCKET MOUTH BASS.We spent 6 hrs bouncing jigs and slow rolling spinner baits and i only caught one knot head that was 15.5 inches and had to throw him back.Even though we did not catch the MONSTERS we wer looking for we REALLY enjoyed this lake.While we wer fishing in one of the coves i herd something rustling in the leaves i looked over to the bank and to my SURPRISE there was a deer standing on the bank rite next to the waters edge....I TELL THE WIFE AND BOY LOOK,LOOK,LOOK AT THE DEER!!!!!!Then the wife says LOOK BEHIND IT THERES TWO MORE!!!!!...I looked over at Widow Jr and could see the SMACKDOWN GLEEM in his eyes.....hehehehe.We took photos and watched them untill they wer out of site.All in all it was a great family day in WIDOWVILLE.Next month we are headed to Natchez state park in search of the elusive MONSTER GREEN TROUT.................THE GRULING QUEST FOR MONSTER BUCKET MOUTH BASS CONTINUES!!!!!!!!!!............HOOK'EM-N-COOK'EM!!!!!!!!

In college i had many friends go to florida and cancun. I went to Browns Landing for the week. Always pulled a few off the rocks right before the telephone poles was where they would strike. I thought for sure I had a state record in 1999 but, I had foul hooked a 33 pound catfish in the tail in 17 ft of water. Talk about a fight!!!!!!

Beautiful Lake, Good Times..

place to stay
I wanted to stay at the state park cabins but they wer full.You need to make reservations months in advance to get one of them.I stayed in Ruston at the Holiday Inn Express which is about 40 mins away.TOO FREEK'EN FAR but it put us closer to Shrevport and the BASS PRO SHOP...hehehehe.I would also like to know if there is anywhere else to stay closer to the lake .

Caney lake
Caney lake Marina loacted at the spillway has cabins and also Browns landing on Hwy 4. These are portable building type cabins and not sure what all they have. Also there is a Best Western in Jonesboro which is about 12 miles away.

Browns
I may be mistaken but I'm pretty sure Browns got rid of their trailers/cabins. I remember glancing over there when we were leaving the state park last year and didnt see them behind the parking lot where the used to be. We stayed in them several years and they were falling apart 10 years ago. As for the Jimmie Davis SP, the best thing to do is secure the cabin in January or February for that year. I booked two for the first week of June in February and they had 17 of the 18 available. You have to book and stay in the same calender year but after about the middle of Feb., they get hard to get....especially for the summer months.

CABINS
Browns has one but it is being rented long term for now by a construction company. Its not the Best Western in Jonesboro anymore it is the Budget INN.
