Spoonbill/Paddlefish

04-15-17: I did two trips on Ft Gibson today. The morning trip was with Ron and Penny. They came from Nebraska for some Oklahoma Spoonbill/Paddlefish. We were doing ok till they started running a bunch of water and that really scattred the Spoonbill/Paddlefish. We did manage some though before the water came on. The biggest was 45lbs. The afternoon trip was with Jim and his son and was suppose to be a combo trip. We did start out trying for some Spoonbill/Paddlefish but that didn't work out very well with the water running so hard. So we switched over to Sandbass. They were alittle hard to find also but we did find about 40 reel nice ones. All of the Sandbass were caught on live shad and the Spoonbill/Paddlefish were caught speed trolling and trolling and jerking. Water temp. was 62degs. See my Facebook page for pics and video.
