40 lb, 4 ozs. Little Red River, Arkansas
Something to shoot for, for anyone who actually doesn't think that a 25 lb'er is not a fish of a lifetime. I do. LOL

holstonangler,
That wasn't meant to be some kind of slam. But that's my motto...there's no such thing as a smart fish. A fish can't do calculus. A fish can't write a symphony. And yet, we have trouble pursuing them sometimes? I don't fault the fish and their "intelligence". I fault myself. Always. If I'm not catching the fish I want, that's my lack of knowledge and ability to apply. That goes for every angler. Don't take issue with that, it wasn't a slam. I wasn't calling anyone "stupid". Hey, I haven't caught a fish that big...

I will say this holston angler, I've personally danced with trout over 20 pounds, I know. And hooked up with fish over 15. But, I've seen ALOT more swimming around at the dam on low or no flow at night under the lights that look like buffalo carp until you see the kype. I've seen alot of big fish in these rivers for the short time I've spent, and by rivers I basically mean Caney. I know in most fisheries I've been able to spend time on, the population of the largest fish has been very well protected by the ignorance of most of us. That's not saying that there aren't some INCREDIBLE anglers on these waters, but it takes alot of knowledge and application to target these giants. I respect anyone who can do it, and pretty soon I'll be forking over some good coin to shrink the learning curve on how. But until then, I'm floundering around in the dark looking for the light switch, occasionally I brush against it and the lights flicker on, but most of the time, no.

Sorry, it came over as a slam to the fisherman who caught it. It's an extraordinary speciman. Thats good you have alot of opinions about big trout, but until you show us some slammers you've taken over 15lb, your opinions come over very lightly. If the Caney does hold as many monster browns as you say, I sure wouldn't be advertising it as such, as a secret hole doesn't say secret very long. Trust me, I've been there and done that.

Basically all my opinions come from action that I've gotten from fish that size. But it's not consistent. Holston angler do you have some slammers? The way you talk it sounds like you do, and I'm not saying that to be confrontational. I'm saying that because I'm intrigued. I've only been at this really for about a year of total time, and I'm very anxious to learn.

Trust me those big browns on the caney are quite safe, and if and when I do figure this out, I ain't tellin' just anyone how to do that. Although, let's get real, here on what is supposed to be a FORUM, which the very word comes from the Grecian society as a place where ideas were shared, discussed and exchanged, there is very little of that, or interest in that it seems, concerning the larger browns. Although it's refreshing to finally talk to someone who doesn't think that a 25" brown is a giant.

Do they still make Rattlin Rouges? I have some "second hand" experience that tells me that it is a terrific heavywater tailwater Brown bait.

Oh yeah, there's a guide on the White who has 27 browns over 20 pounds to his credit over his lifetime. That's markedly above the other anglers in that area that are known, and almost anyone I've ever heard of outside of perhaps the Great lakes. I don't think the Caney is the White, but I do think there are untold numbers of big fish in all these tailraces. I have had a couple encounters myself and my old tech psyche professor had a brown try to eat a 15" brown off his hook at the boat.
