Use Your Arm as Bait!

The Sport of Noodling

I just watched “Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe”  This episode showcased “Noodling” which is sport fishing with the hands.  It’s practiced in 4 states in the US (LA, MS, OK, and TN)… It’s pretty simple…

  1. Go to one of the four states where Noodling is practiced
  2. Find a River/Lake
  3. Stick your hand in a hole
  4. Let a GIANT catfish bite your hand
  5. Pull it out of the water
