My brother in law and a friend went snagging this past weekend and landed over 500lbs of fish. We are only allowed to keep one fish in a slot range and this is the one I kept. 36lbs of spoonbill. Had a blast.

Those things get HUGE! It's amazing they are only plankton eaters.

You couldn't keep them in Alabama years ago when I was there. But I hear they really good to eat.

the biggest fish & mammal in the world (whale shark & blue whale) are both plankton feeders. Its amazing they get so large on such small critters.

Haven't tasted the fish yet but got some nice fillets off of it. That was my first time doing that and I am hooked. The season runs from the 1st of Oct. till the end. I guess the larger females come in towards the later part of the month and they are in the 100lb range.

Snagging and paddlefish are not permited in Ohio. :no:

Ohio DNR

Interesting and uncommon fish and Leo's right they do get a bit larger. The larger ones IMHO should be catch and release because that's a very old fish and a breeder to maintain the next generation. :yes:
