How To Catch Snapper TurtlesIf you live anywhere near a lake or river with snapper turtles, you're not far away from a good meal. I've been catching them for 25 years. Turtle meat is delicious.
Here's how I catch them: Attach some trot line or fairly heavy cord to a gallon milk jug with the cap on. Put the longest steel leader you can find on the end of the line and fit it with the biggest hook you can lay your hands on. My favorite bait is beef shank, which you can get at your local meat shop. After I catch one, I like to leave it out of the fridge for a day to age. (Charlie Musser)
