When I was a kid maybe 16 yrs old I fished stocked trout in the stream that dumps out like a waterfalls from the lake behind my mothers house. I had a monster snapping turtle pull two 13" trout right off my gill chain on my waist, while I was standing in stomach high water..The second time he pulled I pulled the chain up to see the Head of an easy 30 pound Turtle with my trout in his mouth. I slammed him in the head with an old glass coke bottle I had tucked in my chest waders but He still got the trout. Never saw him again
but was reluctant to go back in that stream without boots.
When I was a kid we used to kill time fishing for Snappers in the Bronx River, used a piece of bailing wire and a blackfish hook and chicken wing. We had some decent size ones 20 lbs, this was back in the 1950's, back in those days nothing much else to do.
