    Missouri legalizes bare-hand fishing

    Rugged?

    I've heard about this before, and have watched it on t.v. You have to have some gulls to do this.

    Known variously as noodling or hogging, handfishing has long been a misdemeanor punishable by fines, because state officials fear it depletes breeding-age catfish. It can also be dangerous: Noodlers hold their breath for long periods under water and sometimes come up with fistfuls of agitated snakes or snapping turtles instead of fish.

    Good Eatin'

    That fish looks like some mighty fine eatin'........
    Anyone fast enough to catch a fish in water with their bare hands.....the more power to them....and it seems like a fair fight to me....

    It was illegal? now it if were easy to do, i'd think it should have been, but since fish are like... slippery they're not that easy to catch with your bare hands.

    PS: that cat fish sure is huge! reminds me of that huge catfish that homer caught.

    The survey said that it is mostly 40 y/o men from rural areas who go hand-fishing...how RUGGED!

    Noodling is done only with catfish. You use your fingers to feel around the mouth of a catfish and encourage them to open up and grab your hand, then the Noodler pulls the fish up. You don't physically grab the outside of the fish. Mostly, the fish hold onto you. That's why snapping turtles and snakes pose a danger to those noodlin'.

    I can't imagine that fish was caught by noodling! That's huge!
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    There ain't nuthin' like buck naked noodlin'. I caught a 76 lb catfish below the dam at Tuttle Creek Reserviour. It took me 45 minutes after I lunked into the fish to get him in. Fortunately I had a buddy with me. At first I thought I was into a big piece of drift wood until the bastard flew up stream. Scared the crap out of me and it was around 11:00 p.m. when I got it in. I could put my fists together and stick them into it's mouth. We had a major fish fry 2 days later and only ate 1/3 of the meat.

    cat fish for supper

    Has anyone seen a picture of the catfish they have in the Mekong River? They're supposed to be the largest fresh water fish.

    I don't think I'd eat any of those big ones. Their livers are probably pure PCBs laced with mercury. Small ones are better tasting anyhow.

    'Hand fishing' illegal? Dang, I'm lucky they haven't tossed me into the klink for life......oh wait, this activity actually involves fish? Never mind!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate.

    Wow. You just proved yourself to be a total city-slicker.








    Catfish don't have teeth.

    I had no idea catfish were that large. Freaks of nature... definitely left over from a time and place long, long ago.

    ^-- They can get that big because all they do is lay on the floor of the lake and eat. Most aren't nearly that big.

    Supposedly there've been nine foot long catfish found sitting infront of the water exhaust tubes of power plants.

    jordanb, I think that is an urban [rural?] legend. However some friends and I have spent many nights trying to entice one of these giants out for a meal. As for grabbling cats, no way, no how. It usually involves alchohol to some extent around here. I have witnessed both snakes and cats come out of the same cut banks and the guy had another guy grab his feet and push him back under there. That ain't RUGGED, that's downright stupid!!!

    ^-- Well the fish in that picture has to be about six feet long (unless those guys are shorter than I think they are) so is three more feet really that hard to believe?

    jordanb, I do believe that there are catfish that large and larger. The legend around here is that there are cats around the dams on Lake Norman that intimidate divers doing inspections. I would like to get one of these monsters on a line. Be like a dog chasing a car, though, " What do I do with this thing now?" As to eating these fish, the larger ones are best in a stew where you can cook them longer. For frying, I prefer around 6-10 lb fish. But the real fun is sitting on the river bank all night hoping the fish don't bite and disturb your drinking!!

    Carp fishing

    Thats some fun too. Get a can a corn and chum the water, and don't forget the whiskey.

    carp

    Carp are basically disgusting. Visit Linesville PA if you need to confirm this.

    To eat, yes, but fun to catch.

    I made the mistake of eating baracuda skin a few years back. Forgot that its poisonous

    Let's start the Dueling Banjos! 8-)

    Wait a sec - there's another way? I thought dynamite was the way to go!

    What can I say about noodling in MO? It's only allowed in the Bootheel area, so expect a lot of injuries to the local red-necks whacked out on meth and moon-shine strained through a sock!

    lol
