Details:I was at one of my favorite ponds throwing the frog around and having some luck. I tossed it next to a dock and saw a huge wake come out and then the frog goes under. I set the hook and immediately think I have a 7-8 pound bass. As I started reeling I knew something was wrong. Then I see the head come up. Snapping turtle. I got it to the side of the boat and managed to get the hook out. Kind of a bummer. I ended up with 7-8 fish but no 8 pounders

Even if it were legal to kill them I wouldn't just so I wouldn't get blood everywhere and have turtle bodies floating around my favorite ponds

This ain't the South, so leave them alone I say. Unless you're gonna eat em? Is that even legal up here?

Should we humanely kill them if we catch them? I had one hitting my frog last night; this little area held three big snappers I spotted. If this was the south, people would eat em...
