Did you know that it’s a crime to “noodle” a catfish in Texas? Oh, you don’t know about noodlin’? Also called “hogging” or “grabbing,” it’s when you reach your hand into an underwater hole, jam your fist into a catfish’s throat, pull the sombitch out of the water and then do whatever it is you do after catching a fish with your bare hands. The crime is currently a misdemeanor in Texas, and could come with as much as a $500 fine. But that could soon change.
