    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 :p

    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. ...

    Last time I checked a barracuda is not a catfish. Therefor, not noodling.

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

    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.

    For sure..when I lived on the Mobile Delta I was always more worried about stepping on one of them than a gator.

    I was snorkeling in some natural springs down here in Central FL just cruising along when right in front of me was a HUGE one, I called it a day. I'll jump on a gator but I don't think I would get near an Alligator Snapper.

    A barramundi is definitely not a barracuda ;)

    I like how the guy said arvo (afteroon) and ute (basically means utility vehicle) :) I think it's cool haha

    Yeah, I always like to hear those crazy words. My buddy is from england and he uses a lot of cockney slang and it cracks me up.
