I have not been on here lately but this was just too cool not to share with everyone. The coolest fish I have ever caught - Paddlefish! The leopard print on the bill and gills, the long gills, the huge mouth, and of course the bill - AWESOME! Hope everyone is doing well and hope you enjoy this fish.

Congrats! I used to catch hundreds of those jigging for walleyes on the Missouri river. I do not miss them. It was like jigging in a swirling pool with thousands of swimming logs.

Dakota, I was fishing for Saugeye with a blade when I hooked into him. I can imagine it would get old after a while, lol.

LM - I have been told they don't have any bones, only cartilage and that if you cut out the red meat they are very good. I'll never know, I released this one and, since I usually have eyes, probably won't try em out if I get another. They sure are cool looking though.

Allen, I'll send you a video of it.
