Fishing Report:
As I was catching one bluegill after another this old guy showed up and started staring at me. I guess I was having more luck than he was. A huge old cooter, at least 25-30 pounds with a super long neck. I think he was begging for a fish. Thought about it but how do you explain to the boss your finger was bitten off by a snapping turtle when you ain't supposed to fishing anyway! For those that don't know, they can strike almost as fast as a water moccasin! Also didn't want him on the hook and on my flyrod. Will figure away to toss him a small gill next time.

Fishing Report:
One of the beauties of fishing from "Knot At Work" is how I can get so much closer to anything than I can in the "Bos-Mon". She's a fine boat but I will never get this close to a live turtle aboard her. #knotatwork
