How to Catch a Spoonbill Fish

SpoonBill

The Spoonbill catfish is an extremely ancient fish having been on Earth for over three hundred million years. It is a large fish measuring as long as seven feet . Also known as a paddlefish it is not permitted to be fished in every state since it almost went extinct.
To successfully catch this fish it must be snagged. It is a rare thrill to drag a 10/0-12/0 three pronged hook and a five to sixteen ounce weight while trolling. This can be done by boat or by manpower. When using the baitcasting reel and rod, the rod should measure ten to twelve feet with a line weighing a minimum of sixty pounds. This is a seriously heavy and interesting fish to catch.
When a bending occurs at the tip of the rod, it is time to take a deep breathe, and start reeling in the spoonbill. Getting the three pronged hooked into the mouth properly may prove difficult to do but with practice a certain level of proficiency will start developing. Baitcasting reels provide more control over where to place the lure. They enable the angler to place lures right up next to logs.
