    the pole started to bend over & the fight was on. It took me a few minutes to reel in a nice size turtle & in 5 minutes it was all over with. I was using shad for bait when I had hooked the turtle not in the mouth, but behind the neck in its neck/shell area. I did try to lift the turtle out of the water with just the R&R & the 30# mono. BAD MISTAKE!!! :angry: :angry: :angry:
