    You would have to go while the male flathead is spawning guarding the nest.

    Although legal in some states, it is generally frowned upon by many catfishermen who are concerned about healthy Flathead Catfish populations on their bodies of water.

    I had a long post about this but I deleted it. Just think about taking away the protection of the young.

    true noodlers are hard to find, therfore since few people practice it, not that many fish are taken. besides where i go theres not many turtles and other fish that threaten the eggs anyway

    the best way to find someone who goes noodling is to look and see if'n all there fingers are there more then likley a true noodler has one or more missing.If you find some one that says they noodle and has one or more digets missing you have found a true noodler. then ask them if'n you can go.Please dont think im trying to scare you off because i would be the last person to try to talk some one out of having a good time.

    Outlaw I'm a noodling / rod n reel guide and I have seen the backlash that noodling itself gets in this forum. I know it has been several years since you wanted to try to go noodling however if you are interested I can set you up in East TN. Just shoot me a message and I'll get with you if you are interested.

    You do realize how old this thread is? the OP has not even been on the site in 6 years.

    Yes I saw how old the post is and I still only replied because of him wanting to experience noodling.
