    So many around the house that I could feed the hungry. Anyone has a recipe for these critters?

    I imagine it'd be the same as snapper. You'll just need a few extra turtles to get the same amount as a snapper.

    i have only eaten snappers and softshells, but i imagine there isn't too much meat on a slider, given the trouble you have to go through to clean a turtle in the first place.
    i keep a few sliders in a kiddie pool for the kids in the summertime. once they learn to associate you with food, you can get them to eat minnows out of your hand, and stand on their back legs to reach it. but i know they can also be a pain in the #$% if you're fishing where they are pretty thick.
