Turtle soup anyone...Funny,I just caught my firt turtle on a soft plastic as well,just last week I felt a tap tap,thought hmmm,struck him,and I fell something heavy.I was like OMG,not another Lunker bass!.LOL turtle just like yours,hooked him on his foot not the mouthLuckily I fish barbless for now on incase a bass swallows my hook again.Its been a solid year now without the barb,and I don't believe I've killed anybass,before it was obvious when they would float up
P.S.I used a 6" hooktailworm from Barlows tackle,100ct for only 9 bucks,not including shippingplus shipping.Black,with an outside coating of red
