    I have a turtle trap that I got a while ago and used with great success in alabama to trap soft shell turtles in ponds. I was wondering if catching snappers in lakes is any different. What kind of area should I set it up in? Also, I used whole chickens last time, but I have aquired a cupple dead squirrels (don't ask) and was wondering if they would be good bait or not.

    P.S., I'm setting up in old hickory lake in tennessee, if that means anything to anyone.

    Thanks for the help.
