That's weak. At least the lucky turtle charm left my boat and went with you during the all nighter.

Keep in mind it is also held out about three feet from my body. That thing had to be as big as a trash can cover, maybe 20 or so lbs. To make matters worse, that ended up being the first of 5 that size that night.

Wow, a 20 pounder. I had one later that was maybe 8 lbs, but nothing in the double digits.

Those are soft shell turtles ..right?

The DNR is always curious about them, quantity, size, location...ect.

In many areas they have diminished or disappeared completely.

I think that is about the biggest I have seen..ever!

That is one nice turtle CrazyIce has. August every year its turtles and September its Eels. Cut bait will get about everything swimming I guess.

How are you guys catching the gar? We have never had much luck with them, the only ones I have seen come to the boat were either snagged by mistake, or netted by a keen eyed man with a fast arm.
