I went to the caney on foot like always, the first time since december (when i was really really dissappointed about the water levels BUT they have to have electricity from generation )

I was using a large assortment of roostertail and blue fox minnow spinners. ** i mainly used black, olive colors, pink, and white.

When i first got to the rest area i didnt have any luck because i was playing with the speed of the retrieve.

**Fast didnt work, not a medium retrieve, not a slow retrieve... the thought came through my mind that,' these fish Arent here they are in the deep channels'. then i saw a couple jumps, ok there are a few here.

I went and ate lunch at the truck asking myself if i was going to go back and try again.. i ended up back out there and i immediatly changing to a

Dying shad retrive (reel jerk let drop 5 or 6 inches letting the blade flutter down,keeping your line tight) and BAM!!!! 3 beautiful fat little bows in a row (12-14 inches)

I turned em' back loose after working hard just to see what the spring pattern might be.

i could tell that they were one of the last stocker fish of 2009 because they were fat and feisty

All three hit on a white regular blue fox (looks just like a roostertail, but with better hooks)

i figured it would be nice to know for the boaters on the caney, you can use this tecnique and probably have some luck in the deep channels.!!

Very cool,glad you got out and caught fish.When I could wade the Caney I used that dying Shad or drop dead retrieve

and found it worked great.I have also used it in skinny water for smallies ,it is like they just can't pass up an easy meal(who can) get hung up once in a while but it is worth it.
