Record Setting Snapper

Yesterday I hooked and landed a 15 to 20-pound snapping turtle from a local farm pond. To date, its my best turtle on Sage RPL+ 5-weight using a 9-foot 3X leader with a crayfish pattern. I’m sorry to say that I had to use a hand-over-hand technique to land him. Needless to say I released him so that some other angler would have fun catching him…..Paul Prentiss
