He travel to a remote stretch of the Arkansas River in Northern Oklahoma as target the elusive and North American paddlefish (spoonbill).
Every year around March, these fish leave their usual home in the depths of various lakes to begin a journey upriver to spawn. These behemoths become concentrated as they try to squeeze through narrow stretches of the river, which makes for a much easier target for anglers looking for a rush.
American Paddlefish are filter feeders, and because of this, they will not take a bait or bite a lure.
In order to catch them, we have to snag them. Paddlefish are illegal to snag for in most states because they have become endangered in most regions.
