I've been noodling a handful of times. Shit aint no joke. It is rough stuff, especially if you're digging up under stuff with sharp edges, like a roadside or a stick/mud dam for example.

Plus, some even will swim down deep, and THEN proceed to 'hook' a abadboy, with the chore of coming back up for air still ahead of them.

And these fish are strong! No joke of a sport this is, and the guys that are real big into this, the starters of the tournaments and such, are some killer tough fellas imo.

Oklahoma is a big noodlin state still even nowdays, due to tradition.

never want to do that. Ive stuck my finger in a channel cats mouth and that hurt enough. fuck stickin my hand in a flat or blue channel cats mouth. props to anyone who has the balls for it but in my opion just use a pole and a lil blue gill. seems nicer. sitting on the bank with a brew and some good smoke= good times.

Man what if it was a snapper instead of a cat. not for me

My buddy and i were in a bar once where they had some kind of documentary about noodling up on the big screen with the sound turned off. These stocky, burly guys were showing off their fore arms which were *covered* with crescent shaped scars from the fish biting down on them.... Apparently their preferred method was to shove their arm down the fishes throat and let it bite down, then pull it out of the hole.

That's a lot to go through for some fish sticks, man.

30-40 pounds of catfish nuggets/fillets = tasty and valuable and free.
hard to beat that,
i've gotten scars for far less.

Oh i love catfish and that's a goodly amount of meat to be sure. I'm just not the person who's gonna dive in and wrestle with one in muddy water. ;)

I would like to see more video of hot women in wet clothing though. :D

ive been an avid cat fisherman for 15 years. i lived on the river many summers and love catfish. but i will have to say that a 30 to 40lbs catfish expecially a shovel head would not taste very good. the meat is too old and full of muskie hormones. and im not just talking about a fishy taste and smell. their like deer in alot of ways , prime venison is 2 to 3 yrs old. after that the meat gets muskie and requires more soaking and attention when cooking to get a cleaner taste.
prime size for eating channel cat and shovel head is 2 to five lbs. anything any bigger just won't be prime. i wouldn't eat blue cat just because their numbers `are dwendling since i was kid. use to catch 10 to 15 blue cats a year in my local rivers. now maybe two a year on average. usually big one though which tells me their spawnings aren't as successful anymore. and the survival rate of their babies has gone down. it's kinda sad because the blue cat really is lbs for lbs the best fighting cat in north america

Around here they call it "hogging".

being 'prime' is less of a consideration
for poor folks trying to feed several people-
it's about survival at some point
and knowing how to drag 40 pounds of edible protein
out of the local river
bare-handed
could be life-saving knowledge.

I remember going noodlin with my uncle in Mississippi. I was 15 at the time and I just didn't have the balls to stick my arm down in a hole i cant see. come to think of it... I probably still wouldn't do it today unless I was hungry

Where's that Hippie'ism thread? Couldn't have said it better myself!

Getting drunk can help many an activity! :headbang:

I guess it can hinder activities too... :puke:

As for noodling, done that a few times with mixed results. If you can find a dock (on a body of water that has catfish/FISH in it) that has tires half submerged so as to keep boats from scratching said dock, check the part of the tire submerged. You'd be amazed at what you might find lurking within! :amazed: Roll tire onto land, dump out contents and eat the edible stuff!

Very good point hippy3, although like alot of other poeple you couldnt get me put my arm in one of those holes, I grew up in MO, along spring river where the copper heads were bad and alot of people were killed noodle'n. I'll give it the respect it is due, but to me its like bull riding, I see no point in killing myself for nothing.

you won't find any copperheads at the bottom of a catfish nest.
they aren't swimmers.

now, be alert for the COTTONMOUTH-
a more dangerous 'cousin' that does swim.
