Fished the Caney ealier this month and caught several bows and some browns and 1 brook on roostertails not much size though. Do spoons produce larger fish?
It's about that time.

Inert???? That's not a wrod you often hear \:\)

Big fish-use big baits. But you may not catch anything.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.

I agree, if you go to a really large jerkbait you are probably fishing for just a few bites over the day. I like fishing a countdown on spinning tackle, it seems to catch just as many average sized fish and you can still trigger a few bigger fish as well.
Missed it by that much....

On average when I fish with spoons I will catch larger rainbows and browns. But this is not by far the only lure in my arsenal.
There is only 1 Absolute.

What's up Lincoln Co Archer?

I'm a LC boy myself, just relocated to Murfreesboro... a lot closer to all the good fishin! My family still has a farm over in Cyruston which is just between McBurg and Hot Rock.

I'll tell you from my experience of fishing the Caney over the past 8 years, if you're spin fishing you need to throw a 3.5 to 4 inch suspended crank bait. I spent the first 6 years using worms and roostertails. Caught lots of fish in that time but only a few that were worthy of braggin about. Since I've started targeting the larger fish over the past year I've already landed several fish over 20 inches and bigger. Just recently I was rewarded with the biggest brown I've caught to date. It wasn't all that long at only 22 inches but it was built like a football, measuring 14 inches around. An online weight conversion estimated it to be 7.71 lbs.

As for the spoons, I've seen them work but a guy next to you fishing a jerk bait would catch more fish.

Good luck!
