    Couple weeks ago i was fishing fromm the bank and was using goldfish and nightcrawlers. I was using slip bobbers and fishing the bottom.
    Every time i would reel in mine line to re-cast the worms would be gone.
    So I tired one worm, same thing, i ri 3 at a time and same thing happened every time. Not once did I see the bobber move so i dont think it was a fish taking it.
    Maybe it was the current?? any ideas?

    Yep turtles are good for stealing bait. They eating machines.

    Can almost guarantee you that its a turtle or just another small species of fish. I haven't seen any current strong enough around here latley to rip a feather off of a hook...:tounge_out:
