    Default Snaggin Spoon bill on the Mississippi river in Missouri?

    Anyone having any luck on snagg'n for spoonies. My Friend and I, got 17 big head carp and nothing else. I know it's not up to what it was last few yrs ago, but, how ya'll doing? Any luck? And I don't mean the other's in mid state " no offence intended". How are you doing on the snagg'n? Tell me what ya got! How high is the river and what ya think it's doing. I can't go inland from the missisip right now, so how ya'll doing and where at on the Missip. I Need Spoonies!
    I don't mean to sound desspret just yet, but I'm getting close.
    I just kind of like the sweet taste of white, suckulent flakes, of moist fish meat, rolling acrosse my tonuge with a hint of spicey deep fry and some more of everything. WAKE UP!:happ-big: I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THEIR AT.
    HELP.

    I went snaggin last week also. Had about the same luck as everyone else. No spoonbills, but did have a blast snaggin those big head asians. Those things fight like freight trains. I wish the department of conservation would allow snaggin for asian carps year round. Sure is alot easier, and safer to catch them for bait snaggin then trying to get them to jump into the boat.

    Default hooks

    What size treble hooks are you all using for your spoons?
