Chicot, Caney hold February’s brutes

Most of my attention for the first of this month will be focused on fishing and winning the 2010 Bassmaster Classic on Lay Lake in Birmingham, Ala.

If I win, I doubt I’ll be fishing much in February. However, if I don’t win, I know February is one of the best months to fish anywhere in Louisiana and catch a wall-hanger, particularly at Lake Chicot near Ville Platte and Caney Lake in north-central Louisiana.

Both these lakes should produce many 8- to a 10-pound bass this month, even though they fish quite differently.

Lake Chicot

The February bass on Chicot will be somewhat further along in the spawn than the bass on Caney Lake. More than likely, the Chicot bass will be holding on cypress trees close to bedding areas.Click here to read more on Chicot, Caney hold February’s brutes
