Hand Fishing the Ozarks (not Noodling)

Recommended Posts

Last year my daughter and I really started multispecies fishing in full force. Now my daughter gets really excited about rod and reel fishing, but even more so catching every possible critter on the bank and in the water with her bare hands. On one of our trips last summer Livie got me to promise that as soon as she caught some fish by hand that I would set up a hand fishing thread on OAF. Now I am paying off that debt.

When we were fishing the Big Creek with JestersHK and his daughter, Livie caught frogs. toads, a lizard, and a western mosquitofish on that trip. So here is the first hand caught fish of 2017.

So if you are so inclined to catch some fish by hand feel free to add to this thread.

During our last trip to Montauk trout park, we caught plenty of fish on hook and line. Livie loves to catch sculpin. She caught plenty with her baits. Then she decided to try to get a few by hand. She caught several by hand including this fish.

She loves catching just about anything. What's worse is that she often wants to keeo it☺  Had to tell her to put down a couple box tortoises on our last hike in the woods.
