    17 lber pic

    Caught and released a 17 lber with corn bait on a #8 gold hook and 4 lb test line in a park lake where 2 goslings disappeared a few weeks ago.

    That would make good snapper soup.
    I enjoy being politically incorrect!

    How do you handle the snappers without getting bitten ? I was told you shouldn't pick them up by the tails, because it breaks the bones in the tail.

    I wade out into the lake with knee boots then try to pull them towards the shore to the side so that they don’t see me. Then I try to grab the tail but sometimes it is too slippery. Occasionally I kick the small ones onto the shore and on their backs. I take a huge risk for a 73 year old. I hope that I never catch one again. They cut my hands with their claws and shells. I never learned how to handle one other than by the tail. I really don’t want to get bit.

    That's awesome you let them go in the Delaware river. I am sure they will have a long life there.
