Four Iowa men will appear in court on catfishnoodling charges next month after getting caught taking flathead catfish out of the water by hand (that’s what “noodling” means, apparently) and with a gaff hook as the fish were laying and guarding their eggs in modified old bathtubs set up to house the fish in the Des Moines River. A search of one of the men’s homes turned up about 174 pounds of catfish fillets. Dude must have had one big freezer; now it sounds like he and his pals may land in the cooler.
