    Last 2 nights on the hocking I've caught a total of 3 leatherbacks..more turtles than catfish..

    They seem to love the shad head...all 3 hooked through the front foot and all 3 unhooked themselves with their mouth when I got them up to my chair.

    Can't seem to find a spot where they aren't right now.

    At least you are catching something and not being skunked!

    They gotta eat too, just like everything else...

    I guess..just annoying when you reel them up and they decide to bury themselves right at your feet so you gotta sit there and keep check'n on them all night to make sure they ain't sneak'n up on ya lol. I kept bonk'n the one try'n to make him leave but he wasn't budging
