Me and my friend wen't fishing today at his spot. When we got there I seen 3 big 25 pound Snapping Turtles on a log then 5 little ones and 3 more out in the deep water. This was a river, I told my friend this don't look so good buddy. He said this is a good hole, well we baited up 3 poies and the puilling started I said it them snapper, I reeled in my bluegill and its head was ripped off. Reeled in my other 2 and the were in half. Then they hit my buddy's pole and I was laughing at him when he reeled in his bait it was cut to pieces. I then put more bait on my poles and when they came again I tryed setting the hook but missed. My question is, was that just a snapping turtles den or a bad day. I don't think they'll leave does anyone else??
