Snapping Turtle almost got me. My wife helped with

While Bass fishing I snagged into this small snapper. It almost got me and I wanted to lift it into the boat but my wife reminded me how much they smell. We remembered our
brother in law showing his V-shaped 3" black and blue bruise on his back from a 12 pound snapper he caught turtle trapping. He had it slung over his back and it bit right through the gunny sack. This was just a little guy but it coulda put some hurt on me if he got a finger.

Re: Snapping Turtle almost got me. My wife helped with

I got bit by a snapper when I was a kid. It was about twice the size of this one and his upper jaw where the beak is went straight through my thumb nail, smashed it all up, and made a real mess. All my cousins were jealous. When I told my mom I said that I had gotten bitten by a reptile. When she came to and realized it was a turtle she almos killed me. In retrospect I should have not said that.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
