Snapping Turtles

Recommended Posts

I have had lots of problems with turtles in the past but one turtle I never saw it

until it bit my lure. It was hiding in the rocks in the shallows. Waiting for me to reel in a fish. It blended right in with the rocks. I lost my lure that day. I never knew turtles were that smart.

I've had them steal fish off my line before, especially in ponds. I've caught them on crankbaits, jerkbaits, jigs, plastics, topwater frogs, and even one on a spook. They're more than willing to hit a bait. I was really struggling at a small lake the other day when I saw a smallish snapper pushing through the water willows on the bottom in a foot of water. Pitched my beaver bait in front of him and he was all over it. Gave me a brief fight before I got him to the boat and unhooked him to go swallow some poor catfisherman's hook.
