Show of hands -- who here's been noodling?

    I want to know why was the first person to think: I'll just shove my arm under this old stump. If something bites me, I'll be able to pull it out.
    As the activity started to catch on, they said: Works well for catching catfish. Not so good for catching beavers.

    I've never been to Spain, but I kind of like the music...

    There is no urban legend to it. Get unlucky and you'll have a permanent shocker. I've done it once before. It involves a handful of stinkbait and lots of suspense.

    BTW, noodling is only legal in Oklahoma, and maybe a few other states.

    (Whatever happened to the original noodling thread?)

    Frog gigging is pretty tame by comparison. I went once with my uncle on his airboat in Florida. (I don't think it was the Everglades proper, but I was only 11 so I don't remember.)

    Possum huntin' ... now you're talking.

    I've gigged frogs and tipped a cow.

    The cow made the most gawd-awful sound you can imagine on the way down.

    I was hunting carp in the river with a bow and arrow, saw some movement in the brushpile where I had earlier seen carp, and drew my bow. A beaver surfaced about six feet from me. I am sooooo glad I didn't release the arrow.
