    Spoonbill (Paddlefish, Polydon Spathula):

    For those that don't know, one of the most ancient species swimming in our waters......
    and probably the tastiest! A little bit like swordfish, and not a bone in the whole fish!

    Love Snaggin, I'm envious mdl66.

    I've got a pic of me with a couple in my album here.

    I had to snag those from the bank though, it's illegal in KY to snag from a boat.

    Good Luck!

    No fish for us ,I dont think they have started to run up the river yet, we only seen 1 fish tied up along side a boat.A friend who runs a guide service on Truman lake got a 70# and a 55# yesterday.We do most of our snagging off the bank also but it is legal to snag from a boat,we all use to camp out opening night when we were younger.I can remember thawing out our reels with a Coleman lantern and thawing ourselves out with a little Whiskey on the river bank with the snow a blowin.
