Im having a little trouble deciding what is going on. I fish a creek that runs close to my house, and there are turtles in it. However, when I fish the creek with live bait, a lot of the time I will reel in to find like half of the fish gone. Either it has had its whole back half bitten off (and the poor thing is still alive) or its head was the choice. It is always a clean bite. Now there are turtles, but this is why I ask this question: I never see any surface in this hole, and Im not sure entirely what all fish species live in it. Could this just be a turtle, or is it something like gar?
