About This Fishing Charter

Catching fish in their domain with your bare hands and feet may seem impossible to some, but unto the Bivins family, it has become a family tradition and a passion. We have been noodling for several generations, perfecting techniques that enable us to catch fish that are just swimming or lying on the bottom of rivers and the creeks, or in brush piles. Open water noodling takes much practice and a lot more skill, but catching a fish when it is protecting it's nest of eggs and is intent upon biting any intruder takes a person that wants to conquer their fear of the unknown. How big is the fish?

You have to also watch out for the snakes, and that is also where another person comes in handy to be a snake watcher. We also fish the lakes and go to the river. The river is a piece of heaven. At the river, there are very little holes in the banks, so we catch them in open water or in the brush, which takes a lot of skill. Not many people can catch them this way. But it can be done! Skipper is a great teacher!

We usually go to the creeks at the beginning of may searching for the big blue cats that spawn early on before the flathead. They are the most fun to catch. Compared to the likes of a shark attack. The fish are actually cleaning out holes in the bank, so that the females can go lay eggs. Then the male fish are the babysitters. They protect the eggs from attackers. So any time that anything goes in front of the hole, they attack. That is how we catch fish by noodling. We actually call it grabbling, but the Oklahoma Wildlife Department calls it noodling in the regulations.
