Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department wants to learn learn more about "noodling"- from you!
The practice of catching catfish by using one's own hand as the bait was done illegally and in secret for some time.
It was just legalized in our state in 20-11.
Since the sport is so new the department is issuing a survey to better understand what kind of people go noodling and what their needs and opinions may be.
The survey should only take about ten minutes to complete and will provide the the TPWD with valuable information intended to help keep lakes stocked and noodlers happy.
The survey is available for the next 60 days on their website HERE.
All answers are completely confidential and you can skip over any questions you want!
