Noodling: Fishing with your bare hands

"…Now, if you are not familiar with noodling, this is the practice of trying to catch large catfish with nothing more than your bare hands. Yes, your bare hands. So what's involved is you actually get in the water, whether that be a lake or a pond or a river, and you're looking for holes that have been created along the river bank by catfish. What they do is they create these holes and lay eggs. And then the male will sit in that hole protecting those eggs.…"

A friend of mine tried this over the weekend and liked it, but this is something I will never do.
