    I've seen snappers half that big suddenly bite and then snap off very large peices of stuff. If that was me carrying him I'd have to say that he was way too close to my legs!

    I dont think shoes make any difference to that beast. Have you got a weight for turtle #1?

    Tim,

    I live in Fla also. Where is your cousin catching those? Wouldn't want to intrude on his spot but I watched a show the other day on catching/cooking snappers and I thought I might give it a try. Figured if he lived close, I might learn how he is catching them and quiz him on how he is fixing them. Thanks...
