I had to special order mine.

My son and I have tried using traps that others have shown on trapperman. They didn,t work for us like the ones we were using. My son even had friends that bought 20 or more. Their numbers were no comparison as to what we caught. He caught several times in one week to what the two of them caught in three weeks. They ended up giving it up due to unprofitability.

You want to get them dipped.

You want to use fresh bait and traps set for snappers need to be baited in late afternoon. You probably already know that.

Sure hope you have good luck.

Louis Quarles turtle traps are good traps and easy to use and carry around. Newt Sterling of Snare one also sells a good turtle trap and portable. Search Snare one, Newt Sterling and he can help you with some good traps and most likely pricing as he does it commerically.

Kirk,

I just found out that the Memphis Net and Twine, flat-throat turtle traps are called "Arkansas Style". Thanks for your help.

Hey Ryan, we both know the government knows a lot more than us. Especially about how to park a fat arse behind a desk and spout bullhockey. Yup, them 2 trappers would have no doubt extincted all turtles.
Oh and by the way, keep these threads pure. Leech talk has no place in a turtle thread.
ps
How much are leeches worth? Is it legal to sell them? Can leeches be farmed? Will my wife get mad (madder) if she finds a leech farm in the basement?


I for one hope pesky never quits posting he actually make me look good I thought I was the most ADD person here smile

Scott,

They said it's the same price as their fingered throat traps. The 3" net ones that I was looking at are about $55.00.

Here's what I can tell you...( about Ohio)

In Ohio, we have a season...and a size limit.
13" length of shell, front to back.

If it's smaller...you CAN'T keep it !
Doesn't matter if it's 12.5" and eating the customer's ducks and goldfish.
Dang turtle has more rights than a person !

So you catch a 12.5" snapper... Then what ?
So it's a month before season... Then what ?


You're an ADC trapper..won't mean anything. You're hands are tied.
Now once season opens...and it's a legal size...GAME ON !

Forget hooks, jugs, all that crap !
Hoop nets are the only way to go !

Fish in a bait bag in the back of the trap.
Trout, because of the oil, is hard to beat...carp a close second.
Actually the cap of the skull, which has the oil gland, will out produce the flesh of a carp.
Two-three days tops in warm weather is all the bait will last. If your bait floats, it's shot !

Cooters ? You don't want'em...just the snappers and softshells.
One night should be all it takes to fill up the net.

Set mouth of trap with the current ....even an pond has a (wind) current...which way the wind blows the oil on the water.
Oil slick( fish ) on the surface is EVERYTHING !


Otherwise, the best bait WITHOUT wind/oil slick/ location is not the best set up....

You want the turtle surfacing, tasting the fresh fish and making a B-Line to your trap !!!

Price is set-up and per turtle. But doing what I just said, will catch every turtle in the pond, bar none !

Want any more info, just call me or send me a PM.

Isn't season here yet....SO LEGALLY, YOU CAN'T DO SQUAT !

LT. That's a lot of good information. Our permits down here cover "reptiles", but I still have a call in to our governing body to clarify. Will PM if I have further questions. Thanks.
