    Looked at the map and it just looks like you are to far away. With the price of gas the way it is, it's just to far of a drive. You need to find a closer buddy.
    Good luck with those turtles.

    Dave, I have responded to your post a couple of times by PMs but I probably screwed them up. Anyway when you are coming to the Quad Cities let me know and I will show you first hand how I catch snappers with a turtle board setup. There was a thread on the old BOC site where I posted a drawing but I don't know if they can be retrieved or not.

    Perhaps in the spring I can get away and come down your way to show you first hand how I catch, clean, and cook them. Schoe
