    Just add cole slaw and fries and you got a nice meal there. Keep feeding him and fatten him up for the catch and then the kill. MUWAAAAAAAAAH!

    Quote:Those big ones are soup turtles, they get big. I think some folks call them soft shell turtles too.They say they're good eating,but I couldn't eat one. [​IMG] One soup turtle that's about a foot or more wide,that follows me beside my canoe.They've been getting breakfast every morning for the last 4 years. It attracts all kinds of turtles & lots of them. I think they are beautiful & it's nice to go out there & start my day. (That is after the chickens are out,lol)

    We have catfish in Hesperia Lake that has been there for about 20 years. Last year someone caught him and weighed him in at 47 lbs and put him back. Who is gonna kill a fish that has managed escape for that long??
