Interesting. Stale Cracker never ceases to amaze. I bet the EPA would have some say so about those Freon bottles though. Cool video.

Wonder if he baits them?

Just found out it is best to do it around spawning time. No bait necessary.

Per another coonie.

Man I saw that the other day. New one on me.
I knew catfish looked for holes when they spawned and guys set barrels and such all the time for hand fishing them out. And I’ve run trotlines all my life.
Never once saw them or even heard of them combined.

Ha! That’s a good idea right there! Same concept we use for grabblin (noodling) around here. We would sink 55 gallon drums, or old water heater tanks for them to den up in. Had only one hole in/out, but bigger hole for bigger fish. You could set em out before spawn, and they’d take up residence in em like nobody’s business. Hadn’t ever thought of using it on a smaller scale in a trotline type setup. Prob would be illegal in Texas, since I would think that’d be considered a “fish trap” for gamefish? Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

How long can water moccasins hold their breath underwater?
Snakes can hold their breath for up to several minutes if they are relaxed and not exerting any extra energy. Some snakes can hold their breath underwater for 10 minutes or even as long as an hour.

You ain't gonn find a water moccasin on the bottom of a river swimming around looking for something to eat! Just watch one swim... They stay on TOP of the water unlike a true water snake does... They are a pit viper and not compatible with deep dives to look for food or hang out in a hole to ambush anyone or anything...

You can do it in Texas but you have to run them in the dark. Lol

I saw this video when it came out and looked it up on tpwd. Apparently it's frowned upon.

I heard about some Okies doing this up in Lake Texoma a few years back. Pretty sure they were using 30 gal drums and some old 500lb military practice bomb cannisters with holes cut in the ends. Didn't affect the taste of them fillets at all.
