That's a big fish. He's packing some real power to catch that with his hands. Maybe he could help me move my 8' tank inside lol

yeah, I think most rednecks in the US call that noodling

web definition:
Noodling is fishing for catfish using only bare hands, practiced primarily in the southern United States. Many other names, such as catfisting, grabbling, graveling, hogging, dogging, gurgling, tickling and stumping, are used in different regions for the same activity. ...

barramundi is the outbacks version of a catfish, just better tasting
and I wouldnt recommend trying to catch a barracuda with bare hands either

Wow looks nothing like a catfish. It has scales. I tried noodling once, but we have some nasty critters in the water down here. Alligators, Alligator Snapping Turtles (scare me more than alligators). Moccasins, I just figured I would stick to chicken liver or High Voltage ha ha ha.
