grabble
 v.— «Judge Bryant took exception to my notion that you’d have to be an idiot to noodle, considering what you might put your hands on—besides a catfish—underneath slimy rocks and logs in a river or lake. First of all, Judge Bryant, who grew up in the Goldmine community, said folks called it “grablin,’” not “noodling.” “We’d go down to the Savannah River on a Friday and grabble. The women and kids would join us on Saturday afternoon, and we’d have a big fish fry.”» —“Jolly green johnny” Independent-Mail (Anderson, S.C.) July 17, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
