Spoonbill "Fishing" in Missouri

Spoonbill Snagging in Missouri
            Spoonbill, or paddlefish, are among the most interesting, and are certainly some of the biggest and tastiest of treats to be found in Missouri waters.  Snagging season for them opens March 15 and runs through the end of April in 2011.  It’s an awesome adventure for any or all members of the family. 
Missouri is one of the best places in the world to catch these prehistoric looking fish.  They are found all over the state, in the Mississippi, Missouri, Osage, Grand, and other rivers.  Luckily for my family, Warsaw, Missouri near our own Cedar Rock Squirrel Ranch, is among the best and most famous places to pursue them.
