Paddlefishing the Missouri River, Montana


Had a great time Uncle Bob, Jeff and Gonzer fishing for paddlefish on the Missouri River in the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. We started at the Fred Robinson Bridge and worked our way up the river many miles, stopping along the way to throw set lines and snag. I caught so many different species of fish (walleye, sauger, crappie, northerns, drums, goldeneye, catfish, carp, etc.) I didn’t think the river could be home to. The goal was to catch at least one paddlefish. “The Fish of 1000 Casts” they called it and I hooked one on cast 7… granted 500+ more casts and I didn’t catch a thing. So, after catching a roughly 45 lb male paddlefish I fulfilled my goal. 🙂
