    Headed up to the Osage today. I hadn't heard any reports from up there yet so I called up Dane's. The man I spoke with said the best snagging had been from taberville on up river. I thought it was to early for them to be up that far and debated on going to Roscoe. Well, if they had been up there then this cold front put them in reverse! I fished from Five miles above Taberville, to about 4 miles below Taberville "Clear Creek".
    From Taberville on up: I'm not sure I graphed a fish big enough for me to identify as a legal spoonbill. Pretty much a complete waste of time!
    Taberville down to Clear Creek: The farther down river I went, the more large fish I graphed! I graphed a few decent fish just below Clear creek, but couldn't manage to hit one. That was about the only place I saw more than one keeper size fish on the graph at once! They were not very congregated yet!
    If I were to go tomarrow, I would go somewhere near Roscoe. The closer I got to it from up river, the more large blips started to appear on the sonar!

    Hope this helps someone out!

    Any spoons caught up in Oceola. I am heading up that way this weekend. Will be on the water Friday night or early Saturday morning.

    Was at Dains last Thurs. They had several pic. of spoonbill, 60+lb.
    Didn't ask if they came from up or down, pick up some minnows, about crappie time. also the river will be rising, for a few days, due to rain.
