Man we was noodling before it was called that. It was just an easy way to catch catfish for us. We had a creek that dried up in the summer. So as it started to dry up we would find the deep holes that held catfish dive in grab them and swim back up and toss them to someone on the bank.

It is really fun. We could see them when we did it.

I think people have to be nuts to do it. What happens when you stick your arm in a hole full of snakes?

Don't they taste muddy?? We have two types of catfish here; Eastern catfish and Western; one species from either side of the Great Dividing Range. Eastern catfish come from rivers with a sandy or rocky bottom and are beautiful to eat but the Western catty's come from rivers with mud bottoms and taste like sh!te.

depends on if you know how to cook em and clean em. its the fat that tastes like poo. the bigger the fish the more old fat it has. i catch catfish up here out of the fox river most folk think im crazy. but they can get pretty damn big since im about the only one that keeps em. anyway for the big ones trim the fat off soak in buttermilk then salt pepper cornmeal and fry em up. better than walleye bass or trout.

Guess I don't know how to clean em. In my experience they taste muddy from muddy rivers. I'd also wonder about grabbing a turtle. Or being grabbed.

its the turtles that are the real danger. they tend to not let go for quite a while. peeps drown from doing that, grabd a turtle he grabs back and they can hold their breath a LOT longer than you can

Turtle soup is tasty as well..We baited hooks that where on a flat piece of plywood and when the turtles crawled on the hooks they can't move....Frog legs do taste like chicken...yum..Out-in a flat john boat with a wooden paddle and a flashlight...Shine the light in their eye's and hit them with the wooden paddle...We where kids on a lake doing kid stuff...good old days....Bass rolled in cornmeal and deepfryed or put on the BBQ grill in tinfoil and some butter..yum...Cooking class 101....
