    Anyone in the St louis area having any luck with these spoons? They aren't anywhere. 3 days, 3 guys , and one spoonie is unheard of. I even went and fished the chain of rocks from the bank today thinking maybe the boat was bad luck. lol There had to be 20 guys and not one fish come out. Whats up. I hope its just the temp and the stage right now. Anyone else having problems or what?

    I was down at the low water damn for a couple of hours today. No spoonbills were caught, but I heard they are catching a few here and there. I don/t snagg them myself I was there for the shad and I got a few nice big ones from some kid who was snagging. Were gong out at daylight for the blues hope to be telling some monster stories tomorrow.

    I am up river, but the reports do help me plan. I have not gone for spoonies yet, but when they start there, it'll probably be ok here too. Of course I could use the shad for cats myself. Hannibal Mike

    I'd like to start snagging spoons, but wouldn't even know where to begin. Mayhaps one of these days I'll do some serious research on in and find my way around.
