Anyone here like to eat mud turtles!If so I have a tried and true trap to clean the ponds and fill your freezers.I usually start turtle trapping in July,seems the turtles are the most active in the hottest times of the year.Easy to build trap I use 2" squared wolve wire.Aproximate demensions 36"x16"x16".In the front of the trap only go 8" with the wire down the front of the face.The other 8" has a piece of netting like volley ball net attached completly around the entrance.You want enouph net to go at least half way in the trap.I cut a 4" square in the back of the trap to drop my bait in.I use canned salmon,and it seems to work great.The turtles think they are pushing threw weeds when they are going threw the netting and they can't push there way back out.Stake it down with a stiff branch and leave the top of the trap out of water for the turtles to breathe.It'll take ya a couple days to catch every turtle in the pond.I always leave atleast one turtle in the trap when I collect em in the mornings.Seems the turtles are breeding this time of year,and they go in the trap better with company in it.
