Woke up one morning to see this in front of our big shed. Think a critter found this turtle nest. By the size of the eggs and hole my guess a snapper.

Had a big 1 in our yard & driveway 2-3 times last week laying eggs too. Unfortunately, the neighborhood fox knows about our compost pile & usually hits it on his daily rounds. So I think he gets most all of 'em. :sad:

my brother was telling me last night that last oct when he was up at the cabin he noticed a couple real little snappers crawling around the yard.  they did find the nest/hole dug it out and found about 25 little fellers. so they escorted them right down to the lake.

he spends time trapping turtles and seems to be up on them. he said about 1 in 100 eggs that  hatch and make it to the water. until they get to the water there survival rate pretty much sucks!!!!  :confused: :doah:

That's cool. I knew they had a tuff time getting to the point of being in the water. Friends of ours used to own a resort on Leech and they would cover the nest until they hatched. Most all of those would get to the lake. Always wished we could time it to see them hatch. But never got that lucky.

sat i fished in Mercs backyard!!!!! :sleazy: :evil: :rotflmao: maple lake. got dinky sunfish and to small of nords for what i wanted.  :bonk: had the AIS inspector there checking boats going to big turtle and maple. nice guy...........AND i passed with flying colors!!!!! :rotflmao:

so then i decided i'm going to work with shadow getting him in the boat so i dumped it in cabin lake. it took some treat bribery and a leash but he went in. took a spin around the lake and he done good!!!! :happy1: got to shore and he was in and out a bunch!!!!!! :rotflmao:

BUT..........my motor went to hell. i cant get it to shift..........and if it dont shift into nuetral it wont start. so i brought it home to get fixed..........hooe it dont cost me an arm and leg. :pouty:

There are a lot of dink sunnies in there. Last time I tried it I got a nice one the first fish I got and then we must have had 200 that were dinks. All the good lakes around me now are a five fish limit. Heading up to Arcadia Friday for a week with my son and his family and his in laws and a couple of friends.    :happy1:

Never fished Hatch, I know a guy that has a cabin on it and it's just like Big Turtle,. deep and super clear. Tough lake to fish. He said he has caught a few big walleye off his dock but over all not a good fishing lake. We try Turtle when we are up there but we never get much. A few bass and crappies but nothing to brag about. But we rent a pontoon as it's a beautiful lake to cruise around on. Lots of islands and not a whole lot of cabins.   :happy1:

Went down to the NW access on Bowstring yday, not 1 car. Word must be out or there'd been at least a few locals over there, been like that for at least a month to a month & a 1/2 too. Been a lot like that over at Mosomo Point when we go to town lately as well. Surface temps here have been < 72* early in the day lately, when I've been out.

Our early 1 is always early June & it's a just a Fish Fry. Sometimes there's a little important business done, but not usually. My 10 day looks pretty good for this week until early Saturday. Chance again Saturday night into Sunday as well. :scratch: :confused:
