Get a 1/0 bronze fish-hook...Tie on a 40 foot length of parachute cord with an improved fishermans knot...2-3 feet above the hook, loop the chute-cord through the handle of a plastic-milkjug...Acquire a fish, hambone, freezer-burned chicken, etc., and securely hook the 'bait' on the 'hook'...With a 'tossing' motion, place the 'bait' and 'milk-jug bobber' somewhere in the vicinity of the suspected location of siad snapping turtle...Once deployed, SECURELY fasten the end of the 'chute-cord' to a tree, cinder-block, or other suitable anchor...


When the bobber bobs...And then bobs VIOLENTLY...Haul in your 'catch'...Dispatch with latge stick, heavy rock, or shotgun...

Remember...There are no less than 7 distinct colours/textures/flavours of meat in a snapper, and it takes practice to clean one out correctly...
