Noodling Lake Gaston Catfish

Saturday, April 21st

A group of 9 guys go to Lake Gaston every other year. We rent a house on the lake with a boat shed that will handle two boats. We put out 18 noodles - that is two per person. All noodles are numbered. We draw numbers, so that each person gets two numbers at a cost of $5.00 per noodle. We pay out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

 We did not weigh - no scale, but one was 32”, 31”, and 20”, plus there were many others we did not record and, yes, we ate most of them. We had plenty to take home, so we split up the catch. We fished for three days.

We lost one noodle because we all think a huge catfish took it under and swam off with the noodle.

Happy, Happy. Happy Fishing!
