Record Day.....for Turtles!
Today was a record day for me as I landed more snapping turtles in one day than any other. SEVEN! Yup, seven different snappers made it to shore on the end of my line today in Brickyard Pd. in Barrington. That pond is loaded with two things....turtles and carp and today it was the turtles that were most active. I fished there with my friend Paul. He only got one turtle but it was the pool winner that had to go at least 50 lbs. It was enormous. It's been a bad summer for turtles thus far and the summer has only begun. I feel like I have a turtle curse this year.
