No, it was the 14 doses of anti-venom and expert hospitalized medical care that got you through this, you dumb shiat.

Sure jamming parts of your body into strange holes is fun, but sooner or later you're going to get bitten by something nasty.

How bored do you have to be to consider such an enterprise? I would be most concerned with snapping turtles.

Not just snapping turtles. Depending on where in the south you do this, you could run into a gator.

Noodling: using your hand to poke and/or piss off fish and other native wildlife.

So instead getting hurt by putting his hand in holes, he gets bit by not watching where he puts the other hand?

You stick your hand into a catfish burrow. Assuming the catfish is at home, it'll bite the fark out of your hand as it tries to escape. You hook your partly-swallowed hand around its gills and drag it to the surface.
 
2013-07-05 01:33:15 PM
I think it's something smart people don't get: sticking your hands in holes underwater in snake-infested waters. The act itself belies an ignorance of potential dangers that transcends mere regional prejudices.
Darwin always wins.

Yeah. It's like building thousands of houses in a place called TORNADO ALLEY, then praising Jesus when the F5 misses your house by a block. God can't fix stupid.

It's essentially "fishing" by putting your hand into holes that are under muddy water in an attempt to grab onto a catfish and yank it out of the water.

Holes that are also the favorite hiding place of all sorts of other creatures that would love to snack on your fingers. Not to mention the catfish themselves (if they're large enough).
 
2013-07-05 01:36:14 PM
The more I learn about catfish; the less I want to noodle for them.

They can get massive, their teeth are like a wire brush, they have spikes on their fins.

/ plus, I imagine that more then one noodler has lost a finger or toe to a snappin turtle.

Go out into shallow water.  Wave yer hand around large holes and around stumps, rocks, whatever.  See if you can get bit by a catfish, a very very very large catfish.  Catfish btw have teeth, and when they bite, they dont want to let go...

Best case scenario you get yer hand chewed up a bit and you walk out of the water with enough fish to feed yer entire family, or three families.

Worst case scenario:
Snapping turtle.

After reading the article, I had to look up nooding to figure out what it is.  Apparently it is a form of fishing in which large fish bite the fisherman's hand, allowing him to pull it out of the water.

Looks like the favored fish is the flathead catfish (Pylodictis olivaris).

It may not be a "Yankee redneck" sort of sport, hate todisappoint.
 
2013-07-05 01:41:20 PM
I honestly thought noodling was like tubing but with a pool noodle.

I guess it's sort of like a local delicacy.  The first time it was ever done it was an act of desperation in a time of starvation and for some reason when other food or fishing equipment is available people don't stop eating disgusting things or fishing without equipment.
 
2013-07-05 01:41:59 PM
14 doses of anti venom? That's a high dollar hobby, that shiat is expensive.

/cottonmouths are a serious threat along the rivers, streams ans ponds in that area

On the way to the hospital, they should have asked him, "Do you think Jesus can/will save you?"
If he answered yes, then they could have just dropped him off at the nearest church.

I just learned about the electric catfish. It's a catfish that can shock with 350 volts. But, they only live in the Nile

isn't this risky?  What if he puts his hand into a big ass fish that pulls him underwater

Since these big fish are the breeders there will soon be nothing to noodle.

I was informed that, for all intensive porpoises ( intentional misspelling), that kansas qualifies as "The South" for Californians. I imagine oklahoma does as well.

I DNRTA because I really don't care.  But I have a story...  Well, 2...

See, whenever you catch a snake expect to get bitten, and expect to get pooped on.  Fortunately for me, I've never caught a venemous snake.  Otherwise I would have been taken out YEARS ago.

Now...  Fish story.  Prompted by WeenerGord.
So, I'm in Wisconson.  My buddy and I are fishing.  I got one on.  So, I say "Fish on", and jockey into position to take it.  Two seconds later, my buddy also says "Fish on".  As it turned out, all he had was my line on his hook.  So once we got that mess taken care of, I start bringing in my fish.  By this point, the fish had gone some 70 yards the other way altogether.  It took a little while, but I finally got it on the boat.  It was a northern pike about 3.5' long.   It was a whopper!  But it was also covered in the salad that makes up the bottom of the lake.  While I was untangling it, it spun around and laid a viscous bite on my hand.

Now, if you've ever seen one of these things, you'll be aware that they are ridiculously toothy animals.  It's like a gazillion razor blades all in one mouth.  We're talking blood everywhere!  The guy driving the boat took a drag off his cigarette and said, "Sucks to be you...".  You get no sympathy on lakes in the midwest.  Later that night, I ran into that guy's brother who said, "I heard you got bit by a fish."
"Yeah, so what.  Shut up!"

On my very next cast, I hooked a 3lb large mouth bass.  I was still bleeding and managed to land it.  That was pretty wild!   (I let them both go.)
