    Jan 1 spoonbill season opened will close Dec 31. LOL We are lucky here in OKLA we can snag year round. They did change the rules, you can't keep spoonbills on Monday or Friday. You can snag, just can't keep them.

    You can catch all you want, but you can only keep one a day. No culling.

    You Missouri boys can head down I -44 to Grand and catch them now. There all stacked up around sailboat bridge.. troll with lots of lead and you will catch them all day.

    That's one thing I never got to do or tried in my years living in Indiana but would love to give it a shot.

    Here in PA snagging of anything is illegal.

    We used to go all out for the spoonies. For several years we never missed a weekend during snagging season with the exception of Easter. I got a lot of friends around home involved by taking them. At one time there were Nine Ocean City Rods toped with Penn 309 or 49L reels hanging on the wall of our shop. we have since down sized to just a couple. I will still go once or twice a year if someone wants to go, but I don't like to eat them any more and frankly cant stand the smell of the nasty things. LOL I guess it was just a phase I went through. LMAO Wish I could post some of my old pics, Biggest one we ever boated as a group was 84 lbs and my personal best was 72lbs. Lots of good memories and funny stories!!!
    Good Luck this Season!!!
