      The guy who taught me how to butcher my deer is a turtle catcher. He uses 100# test fishing line or nylon rope he prefers nylon and the last 8" he uses aircraft wire for lack of better term. He would buy a spool from where he use to work it is the wire they use to keep the nuts from backing off bolts. He claims it has a tensile strength of 1000# but about the same diameter as 20# mono. I would assume any heavy wire used in a saltwater fishing application would work. I will post a picture of the last big turtle he got I think last year or the year prior it was 65# 2'-0" across and 2'-6" front to back!

          Stick a long pole in the mud. Place a steel leader with a plastic milk jug as the floating bobber, then place a nice size Weak Fish hook. Then add any fish on the hook. The snapper will be floating on top of the water the next day.

          Please note that snapper turtle is going to be mad as hell. Be Careful!

            Yeah, call the Turtle Man. He'll bring Neil and Lolly Dog and he'll clean your pond out in no time at all.

              My cousin and I catch turtles on a pond down the road from my house. All we do is take a pop bottle and tie a nylon rope around the neck that's anywhere from 4-8 ft in length with a large 6-9 oz. weight at the bottom and a hook about 1-1.5 ft above it. For bait, we use groundhog, because with something soft like gizzard, the don't have to bit the hoook to get it. If don't have a boat, take about 100 ft. of nylon rope and stake it about 10 ft. back from the water, and string a hook about every 4-6 ft, with a weight at the end. For these, we alternate groundhog and sucker or carp.

                Go out side and shoot a sparrow, biggest hook you got tied to 30 yards bank line tied to a tree or post, sparrow on hook throw out, catch a turtle. Easy as that
