    This was the tallest turtle I have ever seen, it wasnt that big around but was SO SO SO thick OMG! CDaught him While getting bluegill at a pond on base here. Had to run up to get a bigger rod out of my truck cause my ultralite wouldnt budge him.

    Kinda a dumb question here... but is that thing dead while ur holding it? lol... Aint no way I'd pick up a 41 lb snapping turtle while its still alive. If its alive. You my friend, have balls. haha. Good catch.

    Heck yeah it has been atleast 7 years from the last time I ate turtle. It was before i joined the Air Force. It will be on the grill BBQ'd in less than a week LOL. Yeah it is alive when I am holding it, i grew up eating them so i am maybe a little to confortable around them LOL.
