Bussey Brake and Caney Creek Named Best Central Bass Lakes
Monroe-West Monroe, LA – Bassmaster has named Bussey Brake and Caney Creek two of the top bass fishing lakes in the central region.
Discover Monroe-West Monroe has hosted two Major League Fishing events and will host the Bassmaster Team Championship event in December of 2024.
“We have worked for many years bringing fishing tournaments to the area. With the latest events catching record size bass on the area lakes, we are proud to see Northeast Louisiana being recognized as a top place to fish. In partnership with the Louisiana Office of Tourism and Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser, we are glad to bring a spotlight on the region’s excellent fisheries. We look forward to the Bassmaster Team Championship in December being held on the Ouachita River to once again attract visiting fishermen to enjoy our sportsman’s paradise,” said Alana Cooper, Discover Monroe-West Monroe President/CEO.
In 2022, Randy Howell, Major League Fishing Pro broke the Bass Pro Tour record for heaviest bass ever weighed in during competition right here in Northeast Louisiana. Randy caught a 12-pound, 14-ounce catch at Bussey Brake and a 10-pound, 11 ounce catch at Caney Creek.
