The turtle situation with dink has pushed him over the edge.
maybe he should become a turtle farmer, then he might catch some fish lol
LMAO, now that is funny right there.
looks like you need a bullet proof vest for the turtles lol :big_smile:
haha. that was funny.
Kill em, kill em all! Then come down to the scioto and then it out!
geez, i cant beleive you posted that! see you FINALLY figured out how to upload pics!
Dink is one of the greatest turtle "hunters" of our genaration..LOL
I told my wife we are going to start eating every turtle we catch...haven't caught one since.
Shoot it, Shoot it! Then.... shoot it some more.
I think we need to go out & try to get rid of as many of these things as we can. But then again, the GMR is a freakin turtle magnet.
Teenage Mutant Dink Turtles.....has a ring to it.
mellon you have a point the gmr is infested with them. sometimes makes it hard to fish in certain areas.theres a place close to my house here its noting but a turtle hole.
that is awesome lol. Shoot it then we can make soup out of it:lol:
sucks the gmr is so clean. some big snappers are nice to eat. not sure about soft shells though
Dink, don't shoot your thumb off. I cut there heads off, more satisfaction that way. soft shells are good eating.
He feels the same way about turtles as I do about gars!LOL
yes they are good! if i could find someway to remove the skin easier i'd start keeping them. any ideas?
Some people kill the turtle and then scald them with hot water and peel off the outer layer.Trim off head and claws.Butcher.They boiled the pieces until tender,then flour and fry.Also.Brown meat with or without flour.Make
gravy thin to keep from sticking.Add browned meat to gravy and simmer until tender.Never know till you give it a try.The Soft shelled were much prized by some.The soft shelled were more often treated like tough chickens and the snappers like beef.They also keep well alive.I see that you know the correct gun to use while shooting a turtle in your hand.I once heard of a fellow shooting the wrong finger off when a snapper had him by the finger.His buddies finely cut the turtle off of his finger when they were able to get the gun away from him.He said that it didn;t hurt until he sobered up.He gave that as the reason for staying drunk all week until it healed.peewee-williams
Heck, that's a waste! Start keeping them and then selling them to the pet market. A SMALL soft shelled turle goes for about $15 retail out here in California, so those big ones would likely make you some good money! Just think about all the fishing gear you could buy with the money you make from selling them!! :big_smile:
sure wish i could find some "orientals" around here who would buy them as well! if so i would target the exclusively to thin them out. last year i set out a 50 hook trottline for channels and 25 hooks had a softshell on it. thankfully, since the line was weighted, they all drowned:smile2:
