    I must admit that is rather digusting my friend, rather disgusting indeed. :crazy::eek:oooh: I guess it's just not my thing! Your directions to cleaning a turtle were very well written and thorough. If I ever get the urge/need to eat a turtle I believe I can do it now!!!

    You're probably right!!:smile2::smile2: Course as long as I've been catfishing, I've never taken one home to eat. I've eaten catfish maybe twice ever and that was in a diner.

    I don't know, I've seen alot of snappers and when I see 'em, the last thing that comes to mind is the thought of eating one. Of course if I were in dire need of food that would be another story.

    You're directions along with the photos were great! You could write assembly directions for those pieces of furniture that come in a small box that require assembly!!

    shoot, turtle is awesome. jeremy you have put up the best how to on that that i have ever seen on the net. i think if anyone who is not a tree hugging vegetarian ate some slow cooked snapper, they would not be able to tell you what it was, and they would definitely go back for seconds or thirds.
    i think a lot of folks interested in trying turtle are intimidated by the task of cleaning one. it's good to have info put up like this so maybe they will see what they are missing out on. :wink:
    i also think you should do a post of how to clean a softshell. they taste better, but are a little harder to clean, since they don't have that small plastron.

    I love turtle! Several of the landowners down by my dad's house want the turtles gone, so we set lines for them every summer. My mom makes incredible turtle soup, with just a dash of sherry. Yummy!

    Jeremy, Well done article.

    I have a friend who makes a slit in the neck, sticks end of water nozzle in it & holding the skin tight inflates with water. He says it loosens the skin from the meat. Just wondering if you ever tried it?

    Just outstanding, Jeremy!! Thanks for laying it out so well.

    Those feet look like the dried/cured feet they sell at alligator farms. Have you considered them as a horrid little momento of dinner at Jeremy`s? lol

    Thank You

    Thanks for the post, those were great instructions. Do you know if there is a market for selling snappers? I have a bunch of ponds that are full of them. I would like to control them and possibly make a little fishing cash doing it if at all possible.
