    Last night, i was fishing using secret 7 and had some hits that had the ear marks of turtles. long, slow, hard pulls and then nothing. When I reeled in the dip tubes were split and 1 was cut clean in half! Anyone else ever have turtles get on their dip or punch baits?

    Yes, I caught a very angry snapping turtle on stinkbait with a treble hook hanging in its mouth.:crazy:

    yeah i hung into a big snapper last week on secret 7 but those turtles will do that on darn near anything.heck i didnt even know he was on ther till i went to check my bait,at first i thought i was hung up or had a limb on my line until i got it close to the bank and it tried to go back out.he wasnt happy being hooked thats for sure,those are some mean buggers lol.
