Mississippi: A beautiful state to drive across, where tamales are popular/traditional, and where sticking your hand in a giant catfish's mouth is a reasonable way to catch it. That's what we did on our way through this gloriously named state. We showed up at another stranger's house and were welcomed by a bounty of southern hospitality and catfish.
The actual act of noodlin (or hand grabbin, hand fishin.. etc.) could have nabbed you a misdeameanor in Texas a few weeks back, but here in Mississippi the method for acquiring these large catfish is still alive and well....and pretty unbelievable.
