Has anyone ever caught a Spoonbill cat, and if you did how did you catch it and where? I know they swim close to the surface with there oversized mouths open filtering plankton as there food sourse. I grew up along Carlyle Lake and heard of these fish being caught, but never knew any details until one day I was at a filling station in Carlyle when a guy pulls up to the pumps next to me with a jon boat full of Spoonbills that he said weighed about 60 lbs. each and looked to be 6 - 7 feet long. He said he caught them in Carlyle Lake over a lake that was submerged when Carlyle Lake filled. I think this was in the early 70's, since then I have heard of a few being caught, but it has been a long time since i've heard about them.
