    I have caught turtles on almost anything. The problem is I am never trying to catch them. Try worms or livers both have worked for me when I didnt want a turtle to bite.

    Nate, I've caught some real nice turtles on cut bait, cut bream and white perch specifically.

    Dead minnows and cutbait. If they are any turtles around, they will eat it. I have also caught a few on liver.

    Yup, got to the local bait store and they will usually give you all their dead minnows/gold fish. Use them, they work well.
