An Alabama YouTuber went viral earlier this month when she caught a 30 pound catfish with her bare hand.
Hannah Barron is a popular Internet star with 340K subs on YouTube and nearly 1 million followers on Instagram.
Hannah has been noodling catfish for 4 years. Catfish noodling is a sport that requires skill, nerves of steel, and great teamwork.
A noodler dives underwater to reach a catfish hole and sticks his or her hand in the hole. The catfish latches onto the hand as a defensive maneuver and the noodler reaches through the fish’s gill and yanks it out of the hole.
It helps if you can hold your breath underwater for about 60 seconds while noodling the catfish.
Catfish noodling is a sport practiced primarily in warm southern states where catfish the size of dogs are abundant.
