Fort Gibson Lake Spoonbill Paddlefish
The morning we were the second boat for a trip with Larry Wine and the guys from Chesapeake Energy snagging spoonbill paddlefish on Fort Gibson Lake in Oklahoma. We started out hitting spoonbill paddelfish on the edges of a long straight. This was these guys first experience hitting spoonbill paddlefish and they were a riot reeling in these prehistoric monsters.
All the fish we hit were hard fighting males today. We left the group of males to find some big females…we only found more males. Oh well, they fight harder and these guys were having a blast!!!
We left the spoonbill paddlefish and made a run up the river to find some white bass. We only found one willing to eat and missed a couple more bites. We didn’t stay after them long because our guys decided they wanted some more hard fishing spoonbill paddlefish fun.
All fish were released and they were off to play a golf game. I’m not so sure they will play too good with worn out arms!
