    Went Noodling again today and Man, I have a sunburn to remind me of the trip for a few days lol...Middle of the day is a great Time to grab some Catfish with your hands but the Middle of the day on a Saturday isn't!! Man, The traffic was terrible but we finally found some secluded spots and got a hold of a few...Really need a Camera Person because it seemed at every stop, Everyone would hit the water LOL...Didn't get the First Fish on Video but did the second after we cornered a Flathead into a Hole...Had 3 Others get away with 1 being a Beast lol..Seems like the Big Ones always get away huh?...But anyway, I did get to play with my Camera a little and tried some more editing LOL...I'm new to all this stuff but practicing up for Turkey season lol...Enjoy my Little Catfish excursion.

    Good Times
    I'm NOT Crazy LMBO!!! Just live on the edge a little lol..It really is alot of Fun!! Even though the Flathead that we did get on Film seemed a little sluggish, They Usually freak out when you get them to the surface in the light and that's the reason we lost the other 3..They are hard to hold onto when your soaked and they are also plus they are so slick and slimy LOL...Gonna try again Wednesday or Thursday and Hope the water Goes down a little...This was a great hole but it's usually a little less than waist Deep but again, We did have alot of Fun and taking these Teenagers out is a blast!!! They will have some great 'What I did over the summer' tales to tell when school starts back LOL

    Hand Fishing's a blast!
    Gt.....all i can say is July 12 2012, I put a checkmark by one of my bucketlist to do list!! All I can say is 'I've been had...hooked, caught!! Man it was a blast! Been one other time at high rock since! It's all soon to be over, but next year I'm gonna be ready when june arrives! We released all we caught this year! I was around for about a half dozen that were caught, but a friend of mine from work has really caught ton...75+ fish...largest being around 48lbs...It sure is a rush to get bit!! Here are a few pics of the small ones I caught! All fish were released, to be caught another day, and to release more lil one's during the spawn!

    I'm game!
    Right with you! GT the first one I put my hads on was a beast! Don't claim to have the strongest hands in NC, but the one I put my hands on was BAD! My partner said he was probably 50+! The strength they have in the water is SICK!! I went down in that water and with my mind set that the 1st one I put my hands on is gonna come up with me.................Wrong answer!!

    LOL!!! I know what you mean man, I Had 1 yesterday and on my 3rd attempt I turned him around and he bite me hard and I thought 'Got Him!!' Well I was just pulling it along and I cradled it and as I was standing up, I think it saw the Daylight and slapped me about 5 times across the Neck and head and I just dropped it and Said Screw It!!! LOL..The power of those Fish is amazing!! I learned how much you wear them out fighting them on Rod and reel the first time I grabbed 1 in the New River of West Va. That thing showed me who was Boss in a hurry LOL...It's defiantly a rush!!!
