I was fishing with a buddy of mine when he caught this catfish weighing about 5lbs. He wanted to keep him which we rarely do. I had the stringer so I put him on the first hook on it. He was getting a little roudy splashing around and getting me wet. I was getting soaked so I decided to put him on the last hook on the stringer. I kept picking on my buddy telling him his fish was scaring my fish away and how I was going to hook the stringer on his boat. Then something strange happened on the way back to the dock. I was paddling along at a pretty good click when I felt a tug that just about stopped my boat dead still. I figured that the stringer had gotten hung on a stump or something. When I pulled up the stringer the fish was gone. The hook on the stringer was still closed. My buddy said where did you loose my fish, I told him I ate it. A week after that I saw an add posted in a conveince store about a man that went around hunting snapping turtles out of peoples ponds. He was saying that there favorite food was fish especially the ones in distress. I told my buddy the turtle ate his fish he said sure it was with a smile. Anybody had any similar things happen to back me up or am I on my own. Thanks a lot!
