  • Who needs a Rod or Reel

    Don't need a rod or reel....
    I never caught a fish I didn't like

    Is that still considered noodling if he used a lure.
    We are the music-makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers
    And sitting by desolate streams;
    World losers and world forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams.

        In accordance of the wikipedia definition it is not noodling since he used bait. Furthermore if it was considered noodling it would be legal in his state which I appreciate people doing! Good man here!

        Ref: Wikipdia "" The term noodling, although today used primarily towards the capture of flathead catfish, can and has been applied to all hand fishing methods, regardless of the method or species of fish sought. Where the name noodling originated is not actually known, but the name is not at all illustrative of the dangerous craft.[1] Noodling as a term has also been applied to various unconventional methods of fishing, such as any which do not use bait, rod and reel, speargun, etc., but this usage is much less common.

        Due to concerns over the safety of noodlers and sustainability of fish populations, the technique is illegal in some states where it was once traditionally practiced. As of 2002, it was legal in some form in twelve states, sometimes with restrictions on the species or sizes of fish, and on the specific methods that may be employed: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana,[2] Maryland,[3] Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.[4] It has since been legalized in Texas.[5]
