Never "dipped", but remember eating them as a kid when supplied by fishermen who had gone up to Wisconsin. We were told to eat 'em bones and all.

I also miss lake perch and fish (NOT crab) boils. Unheard of around here.

Yes, VERY cold at times - that's what the beer is for..

And with the wide availability of turkey friers these days, you can clean and cook the little suckers straight out of the water. Mmmmm.....

Has anyone ever been noodling? It's where you catch catfish with your hands by sticking them in holes in the bank underwater. I know of some people who do this & have caught some huge catfish this way. I'm not brave enough to try it. I'm afraid I'd grab a water moccasin or something.

I know what noodling is, and there have been a number of drowning deaths each year because of it. Big catfish are very very strong, and you are in their element!

Noodling is not even legal in some states because of the danger.

Thanks chocolatechef! The people I know of who do this are from the mid west. They also catch rattle snakes to sale. I personally think they are NUTS(on both counts)!!! I don't know if noodiling is legal here in SC or not, but either way, you'll never catch me doing it! Even the small catfish are strong & they fight hard when you catch them. I can only imagine how strong the big guys are.

Never been, but aware of the practice. I have this feer of a large snapping turtle being in there instead of a catfish.....

Yeah, that's another fear of mine ronjohn! I want to keep all of my fingers connected to my hands for as long as I can!

It's that cold, nutrient rich, pure water that makes the flesh so orange and flavorful. I like my walleye, but I'd eat fresh brook trout over a good steak any day of the week.

I agree, I love fresh trout (char) from cold water as well as walleye.

As far as ocean fish goes, halibut is hard to beat.

Reminds me of a Randy Travis song, "Digging Up Bones".
