    Most people dont know the differance between a flathead, a blue, or a channel. I have several friends and family who thought they didnt like catfish until they tried flathead. The meat is white and flakey and I like it about as much as crappie. In Missouri were not allowed to noodle so we have to use bank poles or trot lines. I would love to try noodling sometime though!
    How true that is. Oh the days of living in Texas between the Red River and the Sulphur River. There is a huge difference in farm raised channel cat and river flatheads.

      I had to go in to the office that morning and I wear rubber gloves when cleaning them to keep the smell down. If you've ever cleaned a big flathead you'd know that the smell is almost impossible to get rid of for a while.
      Sometimes I dont mind the smell, but it's not very professional.

        Nice fish, I like to catch flatheads and blues. Noodling is fun but I havn't done it in years. Getting lazy, to easy to sit in the boat and catch them.

            Turtles

            My dad tells me stories about "noodling", but I was always more baffled by the "feeling for snappers" that he and his brothers used to do. They would wade small streams, and feel for snapping turtles, reach in, pull them up, and put them in burlap sacks. He said you can always tell which end was the head because the shell was smooth there. It was sawtooth on the back end near the tail, so that was how they knew which end to grab.

            I did "noodle" once, but that was only because I was on a Boy Scout Survival outing, and I saw a nice blue cat swim into a half buried barrel in some shallow water. Still pretty wild, I can't imagine if you couldn't see anything. I did eat well that night though.

                  You got some big you know what to do that! I think it would scare the crap out of me. Always found it interesting when I see it on tv. Nice catch though!

                    These fish came from Lake Tenkiller. I do like noodlin Deep Fork arm of Eufaula as well.

                      The first couple of times was pretty scary. Now it's just a rush.
