I love fishing. Fishing for all species and using all styles and tactics. I have threatened to go noodling for years now and haven't got it done yet. My Christmas present from my wife is a guided noodling trip on the upper brazos this summer. I'm super excited to get this knocked off the bucket list!!

Didn't think It was legal in Texas? Might have changed. Not my thing

It is legal in Texas now.

Handfishing
Fishing by the use of hands only. The use of any other fishing device while handfishing (including but not limited to gaff, pole hook, trap, spear or stick) is unlawful.
No person may intentionally place a trap (including such devices as boxes, barrels or pipes) in public fresh water for the purpose of taking catfish by handfishing.
May be used to take channel, blue and flathead catfish in fresh water only.

Noodling is kind of a "hold my beer and watch this" sport.
Actually a lot of fun. Even girls do it:)

Yeah, have watched lots of video of people noodling. I've also watched video of people like Steve Irwin handling deadly animals and getting bit in the process.

I ain't doing either one, legal or not.

Does anyone know if it is legal to noodle for bass, or would I be better off asking in the bass forum?

Just catfish. It would be best not to ask such things in the bass section (they can be a mite touchy on certain subjects in there).

Telephoning catfish can be fun also, it is more work than you think

I have noodled in Texoma several times and have caught two one got away, and from that I learned what to do. My Wifes Family members do it a lot, and are very good. I don't go Deep and I do not do Creeks. My PB is a 14lb from Texoma.

I heard some guys in Florida they were noodling for grouper. I think that would be awesome! go down there with some scuba gear and noodle up some grouper! I myself have went noodling several times on the Brazos River and particularly in Lake Whitney where there is a lot of rocks. I have never seen a big catfish down there personally I've got a lot of good size live bait but no big catfish I've had a few break the line but I didn't know if it was a diver or a gar or catfish or what. I always catch big catfish at Lake Tawakoni and Cedar Creek but never down that way I think that place is fished out.
