We certainly wouldn't want to see a thread go "off topic" on this forum.crazy In an attempt to keep the Turtle Trapping thread pure and on subject. Peskycritter asked

I received my 3-pound order of ribbon leeches from Minnesota a couple of weeks ago. We donít have ribbon or horse leeches down here. There is quite a bit of information on leech trapping on youtube.com, a couple of examples.

You got to love YouTube , that second video , that guy is a pro . He even has a leech grader , nice thanks . My kids are all fired up now . My coil will be in some swamp now . One kid wants to just lay out in the water and use himself for bait . Doctors use leeches when people cut there fingers off to help get the blood pull threw the fingers . They have some kinda antibiotic they release to .

Just know I am missing another get rich thing. Are their leeches near me in PA. There are tons and tons of lawyers and politicians, but I refer to the God's creature that is more pleasant, those black slimy beautiful things that fish love.

No I have never just handed my kids money . But they have hundred dollar bills stashed all around the house . The other day I seen one kid pulling the teeth out of my bear mount and grab some money . No hand outs but always work to earn . The one kid caught 72 muskrats over his Xmas break and got a 10.40 average on them . Not bad for 12 yearold . The oldest does have his own bank account . I told him not to get a dept card and the first year someone got his numbers and stold over 300 bucks at like a dollar or two at a time . The bank refunded his money . There going to go talk to the guy at the bait shop down the road to see if they can do some trading
