Completely true depiction of my adventures with a soft shell turtle, except Ben should be poking it wit a twig.
Sean had snagged this turtle instead of a catfish. I had to wade in to get it so we could get the hook out of him, but I grabbed it the wrong way round.
Now, soft shell turtles can extend their necks out, even more than other turtles. This one was the size of a hubcap and could stretch his neck about nine or ten inches.
So Sean decides it is a photo opportunity, I'm trying to keep the turtle from taking a chunk out of me, and the turtle is getting frustrated.
eventually we got the hook out and let the turtle go. But now I'm gonna try to get my cousin's recipe for soft shell turtle.
