He's a commercial fisherman not a computer geek.
But you said you were on the pill.
What chickie asks for, chickie receives.
I caught THREE last night. Unfreaking real. Oh the big one is 12 inches from front of shell to back. Will 12 make ya smile?
Steve says they are babies!
I'm afraid to even ask what you are doing with them.....
The foot long one ain't no little kid.
Well he seems to be going bigger each night......catching Turtles that is.
Two more last night. 10 inches and 8. Glad these were a bit smaller since chickie seemed to be a bit on edge with the growth as we delved deeper and deeper into this escapade.
Great data there.......just not by giant snapping turtle standards, that is what you are trying to catch?
Not really. The ones I'm targeting don't get to "giant" size. It was already stated that there are "Common" and "Alligator" snappers. I'm thinking about starting to going after those though.
Here's something "data-wise" for you. Based on weighing ONLY 3 there seems to be a pretty good correlation tween shell size and weight. They appear to weigh then number of lbs. two less than their shell size. Example, a turtle with a 10 inch shell weighs approx 8 lbs. Turtle shell is X; their weight is X-2.
Now, I have no idea how this computes to girth so always keep the K Y handy.
wheres all the 150 lb loggerheads and alligator snappers. this is like the killing fields, swamp edition.
