Everywhere we go we see something unusual or fun. We meet people on Facebook and all along the way who do fascinating things. There's more to life than a country music cowboy hat, right?
The Hodag is a mysterious woodland creature that makes its home in the Rhinelander, WI Area. Why the Hodag is only found here is not certain. However, many people believe that it is the clean lakes, dense forests and incredible natural beauty that ties the Hodag to Rhinelander. Eyewitness accounts, along with rumor, legend and speculation, indicate that the Hodag is most definitely green. The first person to see the Hodag was Eugene Shepard, who in 1893 saw what he described as a lizard-like creature covered with white horns. More than a century of sightings and research seems to support this description.
Noodling - A form of fishing in which a crazy person runs into a lake and searches for holes on the bottom with his foot. Then he inserts his finger into the hole and lets something bite it. Hopefully, it's a catfish. If so, he wrestles the catfish to the surface and drags it to shore. If it’s not a catfish, he may lose his finger to a snapping turtle or his life to a water moccasin. Believe it or not, noodling is illegal in many states. Our crazy Facebook friend Ronnie Wilkins noodled these beauties out the Cimarron River.
