The biggest worry for noodling in some Texas lakes would be the influx of so many alligators in recent years. If I was noodling again I would sure want to stay away from holes under cut banks and beaver dams.
Stay out farther from the banks and look for boulders, old slabs and bridges or run the boat ramps.
Infidel and proud of it.
From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."
Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
