    Hey does anyone know about the paddefish starting to run on the Red River? I want to try to get up there sometime, just not too sure if they're ready yet. I know when I last went the river was running quite strong, may not be there yet. Thanks.

    OK yall I went snagging friday afternoon at lock/dam #4, didn't stay long but snagged a real nice 22-25 pound blue catfish on my 3rd or 4th cast! Talked to a few people and they said the paddlefish weren't in very strong numbers yet, and I could see the river wasn't nearly running as high as it was last year. Guess I'll have to go sometime later when I get the chance. I'll post a picture of the blue as soon as I can get it on here.

    Well here's the update. Gave the fish away. He broke off at the bank and started swimming away, so I had to grab it by the tail and keep it from going, then reach into the water and grab it by the mouth! Fun experience!

    Hahaha the hell you say, Cody! When we go to Pacher's camp I say we make a run to 3 river's and give it a shot.

    And welcome to the BOC!

    Haha I hope you didn't forget this Sunday is mother's day, or I would be all for it! When we go to pacher's camp that's when we need to try. They'll be there, at least catfish will.
