    Sounds like fun catching those turtles. Man! That some big ones. Never tried eating turtle, but I've heard it's really good! Thanks for the pic Tracy. Great job!! Also heard carp is great eating too when prepared right.

    My buddy has a pond up here in Tennessee full of turtles..Especially snapping turtles..They are very good eating and in Louisiana where I'm from they are a delicacy..I hate to clean them but love a good turtle stew..I always tell my buddy if I could get a couple of my coonass buddies up here they would gladly eradicate them snappers for him..:smile2:LOL....

    Great report Tracy. Carp can put up a fight. What kind of fight does turtles have?

    Think of the hardest pulling big fish you have ever caught.

    Then kill it and reel it in, with it occasionally getting hung on bottom. Turtles are terrible since of course they are not the best swimmers and they can only grasp the bottom to slow your retrieval.
