Spoonbill Paddlefish and White Bass Grand Lake

Snagging spoonbill paddlefish and catching white bass at Grand Lake in Oklahoma.

Andy and Butch brought Stan out to catch spoonbill paddlefish for his birthday.  It was tough!  With our recent warm weather, the fish had moved from where they were last week.  We covered lots of water, marking very few spoonbill in several miles of where they usually are this time of year.  Our water temps are about 12 degrees higher than last year at this same time.  Crazy!!!

We worked hard and got Stan on his big fish!  It was a great fighter too.Grand Lake Spoonbill Paddlefish

After our trip, we decided to head up to the Spring River above Grand Lakeand check out the white bass.  We have a trip there tomorrow and wanted to get an idea for what was going on.  We found fish a little scattered until about 2 hours before dark.  Then it was fast action using GoGo Minnows in Chartreuse right next to the bank. We would cast it up close and slow roll it down.  Fish on!
