Noodling tournament held over the weekend

Updated:

Anglers in Northeast Oklahoma get a chance to show off some big fish on Saturday, but there was no rod and reel for these fishermen.

Noodling - or hand fishing - means anglers use nothing but their bare hands, and weigh in was Saturday for the 2nd Annual Route 66 Noodling Tournament in Commerce, Oklahoma.

Participants must obey all Oklahoma Fishing, Wildlife and Waterway rules and regulations concerning noodling, and fish must be turned in alive to qualify.

First prize for the biggest fish was a plaque and $100.

This year's top weigh-ins included a father-daughter duo.

Colby Morrow's first place fish was a 53 pounder.  Her dad, Terry Morrow, placed second with a 51 pounder.

"I'm hoping more girls will get involved," says Colby Morrow.  "It's not anything we can't handle, I promise.  It's exciting.  It's a rush and I think more people will be involved with it next year."

The event was held in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Commerce Days and included other attractions included a carnival, arts and crafts, and food vendors.
