Never Say Never To Noodling Catfish

Kristen Monroe an avid outdoor colleague, writer, blogger and  discovering wild Wisconsin one fish, turkey and deer at a time.

A while back in 2011 I interviewed Kristen on my Hunt Talk Show when it was published on the Web Talk Radio Network.  During our chat she mentioned how as a new hunter, angler she was always looking for new adventures to talk and write about on her blog and the Wisconsin Outdoors News. Now Kristen was certainly enthusiastic and a great guest so she did stand out a one of my memorable guests on Hunt Talk for energy.

As we chatted Kristen did say there was ONE thing I doubt she would never try. To which naturally I asked ,,,Ok I give up what wouldn’t you do?

Now you may have guessed by the title as to what she said. But if you just happened to stumble upon the Ripple Outdoors web site by some wired google search or was just surfing the pages here is what she said.

You can listen to our original interview by clicking on the link below.

Last month I got an email from Kristen to which she reminded me.

You know when I said I would never go catfish noodling,,so I replied ummm,,yes I do recall you were very clear on that topic. And I did agree not something I would be quick to do myself.

Well, and I can just imagine Kristen’s  smirk as she stated “I’m off to Southern Illinois at Rend Lake next week to go NOODLING!

Now Kristen is a tiny 5ft 2in passionate outdoor gal as this picture taken by  Dan Stefanich will show, Hopefully she will send me the link to her adventure soon

Kristen always said she would never NOODLE, well Never say Never, Way To Go Kristen!
Kristen always said she would never NOODLE, well Never say Never, Way To Go Kristen!
