Got some nice rockfish wade fishing the caney over the summer. Had a 14 fish night this year all in about 5 hours ( all 14 was over 20 lbs). Biggest all year was 42 pounds. But it seems like they have about moved out of the caney. Wade fishing these things is awesome such a rush to be in the water with these fish after dark and having them hit topwater. guess its time to start hitting the musky and deer hunting now.

I was wading in Happy Hollow a week ago on high water just before dark and saw a very large one cruise past me, had to be chasing the 20lb mark.

Are they dieing, being fished out, or do they move somewhere like down/up the river?

I believe you as well, but love seeing the pics. I have heard tell from a friend that knows a couple of guys that wade fished the Caney this year that were catching lots of big fish. I guess it could have been you. I may have even seen you once myself this summer on the river. One day I passed two guys wading near dark near the ball fields in Carthage. Could that have been you guys? My biggest this summer was in the 45lb range as well.

I never fished up that area. But a 20 pounder around here is just average. Is there any other way besides photobucket to put a pic up guys?
