    Default Burnt cane


    Used to be my favorite spot to catch a load of decent crappie but last few times over a 5 or 6 year period (actually longer perhaps) I have been stymied. Where I used to get a sack of decent fish on some deep water cover now its nothing or a dink or 2. Has anyone caught any decent fish since the jumping carp invaded? Sad that it hasw declined. At least for me.
    Crappie bite twice a day. 15 minutes before I get there and 10 minutes after I leave.
    The two loudest sounds are a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and one that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.

    Same thing on the lakes along the Mississippi River. Since Asian Carp invasion, the crappie fishing has gone to nothing on these lakes!

    I heard about Burnt Cane about the time I joined C.C. I drove by while headed west for a short visit. A guy drove up and we talked. It was getting in bad shape then. I never could get anyone to fish with me there at the time.

    Yeah, we use to fish it a lot close to 20 yrs ago, then on time we went you could launch off the levee, thatís how high it was, the ditch on the far end flooded over into it, we guessed thatís when the carp got in, down hill from then on for us, last time their, 3 of of those nasty things jumped in the boat, tore stuff up, crapped all over the carpet, havenít been back since, that was probably 10-12 yrs ago, we sure loved it while it lasted tho, often think about it but itís to far from Jonesboro just to do a turn around

    The winter when the water got up to the second level on the levee and water was everywhere was the ending of some fine fishing. Crappie left, carp arrived. Still want to try it but fear all is lost.
