Can anyone recommend a guide service to try this out? There is not much on the internet. I have done a couple searches here and through google. Thanks.

I have been on a few trips in the Ross Barnett reservoir in Mississippi. My biggest is a 58lb flathead. I don’t know anyone who guides trips. We were not reaching in banks. The guys I went with had boxes they put out. Much safer as there is no oxygen for mammals or reptiles to breath in the box......

no doubt!!! Alligator snapping turtles too, beavers, snakes. not my cup of tea. Great luck finding a guy. It happens when the cats have their fry. The mother guards their young. Id just find a lake with fairley steep banks and walk on in and start feeling in holes.

Muskrats are an issue. I did it years ago; the fellow who taught me grabbed a muskrat - he told me it was like he had grabbed a router... It is pretty neat.

If you want to make a trip to Oklahoma in early July I will take you. Im not a guide but would be willing to trade for a fishing trip. I have an airboat and hundreds of miles of river nobody else can get to. We noodle big rocks on the river banks with a sandy bottom so we normally don't have problems with other critters.

That would have been great, but I will be in Montana for 10 days at the beginning of July. But, maybe in the future! Hit me up if down in central Florida.

I may have found someone. I am working out some details now, the cost is more than I had planned. I will keep the thread updated. The first company that I found (Alabama Catfish Noodlers) was booked through 2021.

Look up Hannah Barron and Alyssa Schreiber on IG or YouTube. There are some great pictures and videos!

So, I ended up doing it. I was able to connect with a guide through Hannah Barron. She even joined us for a part of the day and took a picture with my buddy!

I personally had a blast. Intentionally letting a fish bite your hand took some getting used to. The largest we caught was probably around 30 lbs. They get much bigger!
