Thats a pretty good ride, but worth it in my book. We used to get a lot of them from the Mississippi river, at chain of rocks, but thats a no go any more. No snagging zone now. Maybe we can hook up some day and get some fish!!!

Met Cletis and his wife, Big D, Zim and Patrice. My dad and I fished with a guide this morning. Worked hard and boated 4 Spoonbills. We had a blast. Looking forward to meeting the rest of you.
Thanks to all who organized this event. Pat Maloney

Cletis this is going to be my first year to attend, could you tell me what time the Friday night meal is planned for? I have 6:30 in my head but it rattles around a lot in there so I thought I would ask to make sure. Thanks, Brian.

The spoonbill snagging has been great. We need some flow on the rivers, but they are still being caught. We ended up tagging 8 fish in our group, which is the limit. Zim, and Patrice both got one yesterday, and hope for two more in the morning.
The spoonbills had a good spawn in 2015, so there's some little guys lurking around. Be easy with the little guys, because they are the future!!!

Just for the record, that was me. I didn't know Zim was still logged in when I posted that. grin

We sure enjoyed sharing a toast with you last night, Mr. Cletis!

What a great bunch of people!

Hey folks! What a nice event! After that huge fish fry supper last night and a fantastic breakfast this morning, we got to snag another spoonbill and rejoin the festivities in time to see raffles and kids' trap setting contests and enjoy a monstrous lunch today.

I have loads and loads of photos I will be posting while we're on our way home tomorrow. I'll have my computer in the truck and we'll have ten or eleven hours of drive time, so that will give me a chance to get it all properly documented! I have some great shots, from fine folks and fine food to fine fishing and fun!

Thanks, Cletis and all of you who put on this event, and thanks for letting us cheeseheads join in the fun.

Thanks Hrdtoflw, for being our host extraordinaire on Thursday and our top notch fishing guide on Thursday and Saturday.

SPOOOOOOOOOONBIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLL!!!!!

Patrice

PHOTOS TOMORROW! grin

Sounds like the snagging has been good everywhere my cousin and a couple of his buddys went out Friday and limited out on 60-70 pounders. And I hear lake of the Ozarks is doing above average results, only one place I haven't heard about and that's table rock! But all the other places are hitting good mostly big males. Water temps are still a bit cold to get the sows moving good. A warm water raise would throw everything into turbo!

The Eastwood family all had a great time. It was time spent with good folks. We are already looking forward to next year.

Thank you to all responsible for putting this on. Hopefully more folks can make it in the future to share in the fun.
