    Attention wade fishermen! Watch your toes! We were cat fishing yeaterday on the river, and pulled out the biggest snapping turtle I have ever seen other than at the zoo or something. My friend thought he was bringing in a log, but this was no log, and definately no joke. I'd say this guy could have easily snapped off a finger or toe. I'd estimate (because I was getting the measuring tape anywhere close to this guy) that he was about 20"x14" across the shell, with a neck that extended about a foot. So let this be a warning. WATCH OUT FOR GIANT MAUMEE RIVER SNAPPING TURTLES! They Bite... believe me he wanted a piece of me, but I wasn't having anything to do with him. No thanks
