....to hold a snapper the way i do a softshell..... i couldnt get my big hands completely around his thick neck but once i did he just turned into a big lump of butter in my hands. heck, i even rubbed his head and and mouth. he was a mean sucker, latched onto my freinds boot and wouldnt let go, but once i had him in my grip he knew he was had lol. btw, i do not advise anyone to try this, i never admitted to being of sane mind. oh yeah, the GMR trip.... 8 channels, 10lb flattie, a softshell, and this dude.
