yeah.. do that here and you could end up with pike scars on your arm (remember the kid who got bit while lookin for frogs?) I wonder though.. is there a law in the books making it illegal in Minnesota?



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!

Hey Fireball,

I actually saw a video clip somewhere of a guy doing this. Pretty crazy!

hi forum! i think i heard about this about two years ago. they called it "okie noodling." i also saw film of them doing it. it looked kind of gross and crazy. i dont know-i really love nature. love to swim and fish and hunt but i cant stand the feel of my feet buried in deep cold muck let alone diving into it head first and gropeing around in it with my hands feeling for a giant cat. i'll stick to boats or waders thanks. besides getting nailed by a pike or muskie, has anyone even thought about our 20-30lb snappers? i do. good day all bye.

In addition to the concerns raised over pike bites and snapping turtles another thing comes to mind. In the states where this is more commonly done there are often large populations of snakes in the same type water areas. The snakes are known locally as cotton mouths (some refer to as water moccasins) that are a venomous pit viper with a sometimes seasonally aggressive/bad attitude. What if you latched your hand around one of those dudes? More than enough to make a man gun shy. Not sure if it is a lack of sense, lack of fear, or a fifth of Kentucky Bourbon that could convince a guy to do this in that part of the country. WOW. Maybe it is just another form of indulgence for andrenaline junkies !

What do ya think,

A fifth of Kentucky Bourbon sounds about right. Can you imagine a 30 lb fish clamped on to the end of your arm?

By the way, this reminds me of a story I heard of a small but deep lake in Illinois that is located right near a farm. The lake is fed by a river and there are catfish in there. The lake is also very cloudy because of all the wheat dust that falls into it each year from harvesting the grain. People with depth finders have seen these huge objects at the bottom of the lake. They rarely move, but have been noticed in different locations, just a few feet from the bottom. Some say they are huge catfish that have been just hanging out down there sucking in all the grain particles. No one has been able to catch any yet, they just are inhaling that grain dust and getting fatter. It is estimated that these fish are well over a hundred pounds. How would you like to noodle that sucker??
