Did you ever hear about a sport called "noodling?"  It's where guys reach up under the bank of a river or into a big old log and feel around for a big channel cat.  When it clamps onto your hand you hold onto his lip and do your best to haul it out.  Usually you have a buddy with you to pull you up if the cat is too big.

Of course you gotta hope that it's not a big snapping turtle in there though.

I know it sounds weird but I read about it in Outdoor Life and you can do a web search on it to find out more.

I think I'll pass on that particular style of fishing.

  Saw it on TV too those guys seem fearless. It would take a many can of liquid courage for me to go noodling.

I'm from Delaware, but love Maryland crabs, there is no comparison.  We crab on the Wye, usually in the afternoons when the parking is not too bad..  Six or seven of  the big guys would taste really good right now.   No one ever talks about Delaware bay crabs.  Any takers..    Lips Sealed  Sounds like a lot of crabbin' fever out there.

I don't think you'd be holding onto a big snapper all that long.  I read that even a big cat can break finger bones if your hand is not in the right position.

A big snapper would probably take a finger off.  It's said that a missing finger or two is quite common among long time noodlers.  

There ain't enough liquid courage to get me to do that.

Yep, that's it.  I've often thought of running with the bulls while I can still run fairly well.  But I ain't NEVER thought seriously of noodling.

Good article Steve!

Noodeling.. Theres another name for it too. its practiced or was down south in Arkansas. I read about it many years ago in a fishing guide. Those fellows really know there business about catching cats to do that.. To tell the truth I thought , if a movie was made showing how they catch them as they do..a lot of fellows like Saddam  and Kim Jung Ill, might not want to be messing with the American people!

I buy 'em live and steam them up myself.  Usually I pride myself on handling them without tongs.  About 4 months ago I had a batch of big ones and maybe had a beer or two too much and was putting them in the pot.

Zigged when I shouda zagged......OUCH!!!!!  One got me and the tip of my finger was numb for 2 weeks.  Learnt my lesson.....until the next beer.

Yes, beer indeed.  One day I'll tell you all the story about the beer(s), the firewood, the axe, and my big toe.  NOT pretty.
