    is spooning still done in ok

    i've seen videos of it and it looks pretty intense. my grandfather is from seminole and used to spoon for cats with his cousins. one of them lost a good part of his calf to a pectoral barb. ouch.

    I was wondering that also?
    I think he might mean snagging for Spoonbill, but I'm not sure?

    If this is what your talking about, yes, they still do it around Miami OK.

    If I'm wrong, please let me know?

    Yes We Do Still Snag For Spoonbill, Below Kaw Dam, In Ponca City, Is A Great Place To Snag. I Saw A 96# Come Out
    Of There A Couple Years Ago.
    Keystone Lake In Tulsa, Neosho River From Grand Lake
    North, And In Grand River Below Grand Lake.

    I sure would like to know what this spooning is. Im always interested in new fishing methods. I have seen a guy below canton lake dam catching flatheads on a large spoon.

    Boy I sure wish someone would let us know for sure what spooning is! I've been losing sleep, slacking off at work, eating poorly, drinking too much of the wrong things.....and I've been wondering about spooning for catfish, too! :wink:

    I thought you were talkin about trolling spoons. Never heard that method being referred to as "spoonong" though.

    :smile2: I've snagged a lot of spoonbills in my day, but i'll leave the other "spooning"
    to the imagenation. As for the snagging part, a 30# bill on the end of a 15' rod is a lot of fun

    i saw a comment there about keystone. if your talking about snagging below keystone dam all the way to the i 44 bridge, its highly illegal. im gonna interpret spooning as throwing spoon lures. thats a wicked bad way of nailing flatheads when their feeding. i dont know about dropping a spoon into a log jam or anything because they sure will get stuck.

    No Josh, you can snag spoon bill at the uper end of the lake all the way up the Arkansas to Kaw Dam. Its fun too you should try it.

    oh yeah ive got some big ones on the arkansas but a few miles below the 44 bridge. the biggest ive gotten was 55 pounds and ill tell you its no small feat tail hookin a hawg like that. funny thing too, a fishing buddy hooked that same fish not even five minutes after i caught and released it. but he just dragged it right in because she was exhausted. sucked for her but it was good times.

    i'm glad somebody knew what i was talking about. my grandfather's from seminole, ok. and he told me about it. he's in his nineties and i guess that term is no longer in use, but it is noodling. i didn't mean to stir up such contraversy, lol. i was just wondering how common it is anymore.
