Spoonbill Day on Ft. Gibson

Well on May 5th we went down to Ft. Gibson lake and filmed our Spoonbill episode with Rusty Pritchard Guide Service.  We had been pumped for this episode for awhile now so it was awesome to finally get on the water and start fishing!  We put in at Mazie Landing and headed out to our first spot!  Stinger, Chadwick and I were all pumped to get to snaggin’!  Before Tommy Vaughn the deckhand on the boat could show me the technique ol’ Chadwick Nelson was hooked up to a Spoonbill.  Little did we know that this would be the theme of the day.  Chadwick was on em all day long!  He caught 6 spoonbill on the day while Stinger caught 1 and I caught..well….NONE.  I kept saying throughout the whole episode that “I’ll catch one”.  Well it didn’t happen, but that’s the way fishing goes sometimes!  I just wanted to film an awesome episode and Rusty & Tommy were great for our show!  They really got to be themselves and it was awesome to see.  Chadwick had a great time reeling in big spoonbill after big spoonbill; it was great seeing him having a great time.  All in all, it was an awesome trip with an awesome crew.  If you are ever looking for a great guide service to put you on blue cats, or spoonbill then check out Pritchard’s Guide Service.

Who knows, you may end up hooking “Big Bill”…..
