I'll be cooking up my second turtle ever tonight. Made a big pot of excellent soup out of the first one last week. Been getting them out of a private lake in Geauga County. I've been using 4/O saltwater circle hooks on 30 lb steel leader attached to 80 lb dacron and hanging the rigs from fallen trees. Cut bluegill for bait. I think I'll be rigging up with steel cable crimped directly to the hook from now on because I've lost a couple rigs at the leader. I would be interested in anyone's favorite recipes or rigs.
