Hooked: Extreme Noodling

Hooked: Extreme Noodling
Leave your rod and reel at home — NGC is going inside the extreme fishing world of noodling. We'll travel overseas with an American fishing team to wrestle one of the world's biggest river beasts by hand — a monster Wels catfish. It's a dangerous task, as Wels can stretch up to 15 feet long and weigh over 600 pounds! Elsewhere, fearless scientists are doing some hand fishing of their own … to save a species.
