    You can get them from ebay. Pretty good prices for them. The last ones I looked at were 10/0 and pack of 36 for $23. I think it was free shipping but am not sure.

    Me and a couple buddies pour all our own sinkers, 3-5 ounce is all we use, and used to get hooks from Zeiners in bulk. I'm not sure if they are still as cheap as they used to be. We ran out of hooks in Chetopa last year and ended up buying a bunch real cheap from the gas station right there west of the bridge the river runs under. Also bought some fairly cheap at a little bait store on on Kaw Lake when we were snagging down there. Where you planning on going? Also another place down on Grand Lake open for snagging that's got some cheap tackle. Don't remember the name of it and I couldn't tell you how to get there, but it's there heh.

    Don't forget you can jet down south from wichita there and snag the spillway at Kaw Lake for spoonbills too. I've heard of guys pulling some nice 'bills out of there, I never had any luck the one time I tried but something to keep in mind. I'm definately looking forward to 'bill season. Last year was my first year and I'm addicted now. :arghh:

    Oh, by the way..I'm sure you already know but figured I'd throw it out there anyway..if you decide to go to Oklahoma snagging be sure to file the barbs off your hooks. They are pretty particular about barbless hooks down there. Almost got in trouble for it last year my first trip down to Miami, my fault I didn't check the laws better, and the game warden let us off with a warning. If I remember right he said they'll take a cotton ball and wipe it across your hook, if any of the cotton hangs up on it it's considered barbed and you get a ticket. It's a pretty easy fix, pair of dikes and a file and you're good to go. Have fun.

    I wanna say we were buying non resident 5 day licenses for like 15 bucks or something like that. You gotta tell them you want a snagging number though, and every bill you land you gotta tag with that number. We wrapped duct tape around the snout and wrote the number on there with a sharpy. I think the limit is 3 bills a day but you might wanna double check. Word has it they changed the laws this year too so be sure to read everything. I'm sure the regs are posted on the Oklahoma website so no worries on finding out.

    For NR anglers its 23.50 for a 5 day and 42.00 for annual you would be better of gettin the annual license im pretty sur you have to have a tag for paddle fish too but it didnt show a price. Last year I seen a couple guys snagging at the kaw dam in oklahoma they snagged a small one
