i like to think of the mason dixon line as a magical force field that keeps these people away from me.
Can't we just appreciate how cool noodling is without denigrating southerners. I'm a southerner too you know.
Cena_mark is excluded from my sweeping generalization because he's too valuable to PoE. also because he voted for my pig beheading video that's currently in the hopper.
Denigrating sounds like what Cena_mark wanted America to do last election.
Think of the poor people who were born here and then became non-retarded by discovering the internet! We're TRAPPED.
Even the catfish are retarded. Who would bite that guy's arm, of all people?
At least rednecks have learned to operate cameras. Now everyone can see what I go through and get a little amusement out of this.
In King of the Hill they called this "Catfisting".
do they at least disinfect their wounds or do they just wash up with water from the lake and pray to Jeebus not to get an infection?
The catfish don't bite very deep. I'm sure they've done it enough times to know what they can get away with.
They're not stupid you know.
Ding. Dang. Doo.
Herda. Haida. Herda.

"Dirty Jobs" did a show on this. The rednecks gave Mike Rowe a lot of shit, you could tell he was genuinely miserable (which means it was a good episode).
THEM'S GOOD EATIN'!
Now, wait a minute. Before we get too deep into these guys being dumb rednecks, one of them did say "waylay."
I don't think I have -ever- heard a Northerner utter that in common parlance.

Just some guys having a good time. I don't see why you'd look down on them for that. I've known a few noodlers and they were all nice enough folk. Certainly lesser injuries than skateboarders or skiers regularly get.
Also those are some pretty big fish. The noodlers I know grab the fish's jaws rather than stuff their whole arm down its throat, but while that works for a 12-pound fish it probably doesn't for a forty-pound fish.

Fucking A man. I'm surprised they got away with only minor cuts. The thrashing of a normal sized catfish left me pretty leery of their spines. I can only imagine the strength that a 40 pound beast like that has.
I kind of wish he had punched it a time or two for good measure.
On the one hand this is what fishing rods were invented to prevent.
On the other I can't help but respect a man who catches a catfish by letting it BITE INTO HIS ARM!!!
Well, if you're going to get a catfish that seems like a pretty effective way to do it. Saves money on high tension fishing line. Wouldn't want to try to hold a conversation with them afterwards, though...
Aww, it's the Slowpoke school of fishing. :)
These are admirable men.
