Catfish grabblin’…shark wrangling…flying-fish fighting…and wrestling beasts by the boatload…it’s the world’s most extreme encounters of man vs. fish. From America’s swampland…to the oceans off Papua New Guinea…to Sardinia’s Mediterranean shores…since man’s roamed the earth, he’s fished for food, sport, and survival. For most, the tools are rod and reel, spear and net. But for some, it’s personal. To catch whopper fish, they use extraordinary bait. Their own bodies. Nothing more than fingers…hands…even whole arms. Noodling. Tickling. Grabblin’ or hoggin’. Whatever you call it, it’s catfish wrangling. For these obsessed anglers, handfishing’s their toughest test of strength and endurance. Dedicated and determined, they carry on traditions old and new. Showdowns with powerful predators…intense competitions for sport and food…and mad melees of man vs. fish. All for the extraordinary thrill of fishing adventures Caught Barehanded.
