Howdy y'all. New member on the Fishing Forum. I'm a newly retired Lockheed Martin electrical engineer (BSEE Texas A&M 1982) who loves to run jug lines for catfish. I've been playing around for the last few years on designing a different kind of catfish noodle that is really enjoyable to use. I think I've hit on something and wanted to share. I've put together a tutorial on my design and just posted it on a DIY website called Instructables. Not sure if the link is active yet or not but here it is... Noodle Design

Looking forward to talking catfishing with everyone.

Later!

Willy

Welcome to the forum. That’s a good design, I like way the line is wound and not around the noodle. Good job with that.

That is an interesting design. Where do you live and fish? Maybe we can have a friendly competition.

Competition? Oh my.... no that would kill it for me. I love this way of fishing because it's so laid back and relaxing. I enjoy sitting under the bimini, drinking a beer, and just hanging out.

FIFY

Great design! I’m guessing you have to hold the spool tight with the noodle to wrap it up?

And welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the Forum Willy! I see you fish Lewisville Glenn. This time of year I’m a pleasure drifter and like to crack a few cold ones and relax under the t-top like Willy. I’ll have a friendly competition with ya as soon as my knee heels up though. 3 more weeks and I’ll be off crutches and back in the boat. I fish by rod and reel so it’ll have to be r&r vs jugs. texas

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I hold the noodle in my left hand and keep the spool from moving using my index finger as I wrap the line on with my right hand.

Well, Willy, I just want to see how my noodle sticks perform vs. other designs. I don't know if it would be a fair challenge against your rods and reels Gato Azul. Maybe if I could have your son for a partner and the dog was your partner it would be fair.

You picked the wrong partner Glenn! That cowdog is a catfish sniffin son of a gun. All I gotta do is show up and he points me right to em...My son on the other hand is a wild ace and will mess with all your gear and put you on tilt amigo! You’d be lucky if you were able to deploy a single jug with him on board. frkazoid

No worries brother. I doubt that one design is any better than another at catching fish. I've got a buddy of mine who thinks I'm nuts with all this gadgetry stuff. He just uses a big chunk of high density packing foam for his rig. Catches the heck out of the catfish on Tawakoni.

My whole deal was just trying to put together something that was really enjoyable to use.
