doodlesocking
 n.— «Spawning crappie are easily frightened by noisy movements, so approach shallow fishing spots quietly. Some anglers use 10-foot rods equipped with short lines, wading and dipping the lure in a technique known as “doodlesocking.” Dipping the jig in likely-looking habitat, the doodlesocker can fish from spot to spot without spooking the fish. This is an effective method when crappie are in water less than 3 feet deep.» —“May Is Time to Clean Up on Crappie” in Pratt, Kansas infoZine May 9, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
