Tis the season

to snag paddlefish! So I will be fishing next week, I hope I get a really big one this year! They may be ugly, but they are poor man's lobster! They are also REALLY fun to catch. You don't bait a hook, you snag them and they fight like hell! I almost was drug into the river one year. So wish me luck!

Good, it took a couple of times out before I got one. Sadly the first one I caught was breeding stock so it had to be thrown back. You can't keep ones that are between 35 and 45 inches (tail to eyeball) I was able to wrestle in a few that size before keeping a 31 1/2 inch one. YUMMMMY! And now there are fish heads buried in my garden :)
