crockpot turtle
 
turtles - catching and eating 
 
my personal favorite way to prepare turtle is to slow cook it in the 
oven, crock pot, or even over a fire. you'll need to start it early - it 
should cook at least 5 hours. the longer it cooks the more tender it is, 
and turtle is not tender to begin with. simply brown turtle in butter, 
then mix in cooking pan with cream of mushroom soup, chopped onion and 
black pepper to taste. turtle is not strong tasting as a rule and i 
don't recommend too much spice. 
as for catching turtles, it is easier than i ever thought. i just had to 
ask an old timer for advice. turtles love beef liver which can be bought 
for next to nothing, but i prefer to catch small chubs or suckers from a 
local creek (gets my kids involved too). i think the texture of a small 
fish is more likely to conceal the feel of the hook. i use construction 
chalk-line and a large straight hook, no leader and no treble hooks. 
simply tie one end of your line to a bridge, fence post, etc. (lines do 
not need to be too long). i have had my best luck in backed-up areas of 
small creeks, but i believe that turtles grow bigger in ponds. either 
way, the lines don't need to be too far from shore, it seems that 
turtles do most of their feeding next to land.
