There is a new way to go fishing and it’s called noodling. The technique is being used to catch catfish. However we haven’t heard of this method being used here in Sudbury as of yet.
The honest truth of the matter is that we aren’t even sure if noodling catfish is legal in Canada. However, if you are brave enough to stick your hand down the ferocious fishes mouth then we say you deserve the prize.
Noodling catfish is a technique where you are in the catfish invested waters and you stick your hand through the mouth and the gills to catch the fish.
One reason it might not be so common for us here in Northern Ontario is because of the size of catfish needed to conduct this bold atrocity. Nonetheless if you go down into the “Deep South” such as Alabama, this technique seems to be catching on.
If you watch the video below you will see some brave men and women take their shot and actually noodle several large catfish.
What are your thoughts on this new technique? Are you ready to give it a shot? Maybe a large mouth bass would be a better experiment.
At the end of the day that is a no go for us!
