Is noodling for catfish illegal?



  1. 0 Votes

    Noodling is legal in the following states: Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kansas, Illinois, Arkansas, and Missouri. Noodling involves fishermen going out into the water, diving down, and reaching into submerged hollow logs, underwater hollows, or specially designed boxes that have been made ahead of time and placed in the habitats of these fish to entice them to nest there. The fish then in turn bite the hand of the angler, and the fish is hauled out of the water and onto the bank, which often results in injury, sometimes serious, to the fisherman.
