    I've heard my ex-father-in-law talk of it, never have tried. I can't swim :0a20:so you understand why I've never tried it now I guess. I understand how it work and all but never have been involved.

    I know of some guys that used to do it for turtles. No way would you ever catch me doing it, I've grown pretty attached to my fingers and hands...:wink::smile2:

    That would cause a problem. I would love to try it , I would have to seal my ears because I cant get water in my ears I will get Vertigo. That will make it a bad day or 2... It looks like that is the only way to catch Catfish at Dewey right now.:smile2: at least for me that is.:angry: I am just wondering if anybody has tried it around here. BTW Dewey has ALOT of snakes , wouldn't that be a BIG problem?

    Snakes and turtles are a major problem with noodling and that is the reason why I will never do it. I just cant understand why someone would want to risk losing there fingers or worse there life !!!!!!!
