OKIE NOODLEIN

Recommended Posts

looks like a lot of fun someday I will give it a try. I

dont need the stringer thou and could see that it could desicrate the population and with all contests as this show was kind of about there was quite a bit of talk about cheating.

there was a lot of big cats that were caught and there wasnt the handleing ethics that we so much talk about in our forums.

I really dig that noodling! I may even give it a try down south some time.

It's illegal here in MN and WI, I guess you can have a GPS, the chip lakemap with depth contour, 300 dollar rod, underwater camera, 250 hp with kicker motor, superline, power bait, fish scent, and on and on - but it's illegal to go toe to toe and catch on with your hands!?

The guys talking on that show should have had subtitles. Half the time I wasn't sure what language they were speaking. And the way those guys looked, it could be a cautionary lesson on what the offspring are like when close relatives marry. Did anyone notice that no fish were ever released? I can't believe that a 50 pound cat would taste very good.

no your thinking of girls gone grabblin grin

I am always thinking of them. smile

I thought a few years back we discovered there are like 3 regional names for noodling. I think OK, was noodling, but I don't remember where they call it grabbling or if/what that 3rd term was. It may have been 'Lucky if you keep your finger'ens'.

yea there is differnt names for it and each area of the country has a name for it they said a couple on the show like okie noodlein and grabblin. and one guy just called it plain crazy. I heard the other name for it when I was down south working some years back and for the life of me I cant remember what the called it.

I was surprised to hear even in most southern states its illegal, and where they filmed it was.

I can understand why it would be, becuase they are targeting these fish during spawn/early postspawn, when the fish are most vulnerable, but it would be a lot of fun!!!

I'd use the stick method to probe the holes first. I'd hate to loose a finger to a snapper or a beaver....:-(

Do they normally just do this in lakes or reservoirs with Flatheads or do people actually sit in rivers? I just could not imagine swimming around in a hole on the Minnesota River...

they do it pretty much where ever flatheads are.

Yea Dennis I think the stick method is the key and they showed some pretty good depictions of what might happen.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
