I was gonna post this question in general chit chat, but figured it would be a good topic for discussion in the survival forum.
For those who don't know, noodling is a very old catfishing technique where a person seeks out a catfish hole and uses his/her arm as bait for monster
cats. It is a very dangerous endeavour, peopke die every uear noodling for fish.
So my question is, do we have any resident noodlers? I am gonna learn this summer and I am looking for tips. My plan so far...I will not dive to
noodle. I intend to stay in 4' of water. I am undecided on whether or not to use gloves, and I am considering wearing a long sleeved button down shirt
to slip off in case things go south on me.
I also do not plan on using two hands. I want one free to pull my diving knife if need be.
The reason I posted in Survival should be obvious. This fishing technique, once learned, will last a life time and can be used without any tackle.
I think anyone attemptng should also be sure to have at least two friends with them for safety reasons.
Any advice would be appreciated.
