Paddlefish Season Ends
Paddlefish season is looked forward to each year on Table Rock Lake. It runs for six weeks normally, from mid - March to the end of April.
A total of two fish per day is the allowed catch for these unusual creatures that are said to provide a "poor-man's" cavier.
The harvest of paddlefish is strictly regulated by the Missouri Conservation Department to ensure the fish population remains healthy and to give a high quality angling experience for everyone to enjoy.
That quota was totally ignored by some poachers caught by Conservation Agents butchering 61 paddlefish on April 22.
As a result, the Agents issued a total of 12 citations to the poachers, and as one agent said "it was a shame that other sportsment won't get a chance at these fish."
