        I caught one a few years ago that nearly drowned me that weighed 52 lbs. The life expectancy of a flathead is about 20 years. I have heard of 80+ pounders.

          Wow! I have seen it on tv and it looks like some crazy fun but never seen it in person or tried it.

            Almost forgot, the 36 pounder in the picture had a 16" largemouth bass in its gut that would've prolly weighed nearly 2 lbs. The bass's tail was sticking out of it's throat. They're pretty amazing predators, people think they are slow or lazy, but to catch a bass of that size shows what kind of predators the flathead really are. Flathead are'nt like other catfish, they prefer live food, they're not scavengers. That's why I like 'em so much, they are hunters.

              It's a total rush, putting you're hand in a hole underwater trying to bit by a huge fish! Then wrestling that monster in his element.
              Noodling is only legal in 4 states, Oklahoma being one of them. If you ever come to Ok in late May or June I'd be glad to take you.

                I like to think of myself as a true outdoorswomen but in all honesty I don't think I could ever noodle. I'd get so freaked out.
                Also.... I just want to point out that you have a picture comparing the size of a catfish to the size of your infant. I find this humorous and I just can't help it.

                  That's just a true redneck moment captured in time. I wanted to take that pic so I could show her when she's older. My wife did'nt understand either. I thought it was classic.

                    Thanks for the offer. If I ever make it out I would love to give it a try. I have to admit sticking your hand in a hole not knowing whats in there sounds crazy but wrestling a monster sounds like an absolute blast. Thanks for sharing the pics.

                        You're a redneck man! ...I wish I was half the redneck you are, but I gotta draw the line somewhere. Puttin my hand down into the water trying to get bit is crazy man!!! For one, ive seen snapping turtles around here capable of tearing off a limb(or at least a finger). And two, those cats are huge and can throw there weight around... I guess im just too chicken... Even if I did successfully get a big cat to bite my hand instead of a turtle, im afraid he'd break my arm off or drown me.

                        Awesome cats...but you're crazy man!

                          My only real concern with the whole concept is a cotton mouth. A flathead nesting hole is always clean and smooth. Holes with leaves or sticks can mean a snake or a beaver could be hiding in there, either one is trouble. Once you know its clean you're in the clear.

                              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!
