I work for the Zoo and NOAA brings injured Turtles to our Hospital each week.
I have access to stickers as well if anyone is interested.

Yesterday about 40 miles offshore, a massive sea turtle was swimming around a rig. probably 4ft long. It swam around the rig, looked at us, and dove down to never be seen again

This is what I do with the turtles I catch. http://www.food.com/recipe/buccaneer...c-style-341596 . I know a lot of people think the turtles are cool, but if you call in a report about turtles on the beach the feds will come in and shut the beach down. They shut down half of Sargent to vehicle traffic because some idiot thinks sea turtles are nesting there. Take my advice, if you want to keep your surf fishing spots than don't report sea turtle sightings.

I was wading the surf today and had one about the size of a dinner plate pop up and swim around me for a little while. Cool site.

I snagged one at San Luis Pass last week

I had one get the claw of his back flipper snagged on my weight drop line. I reeled him in, cut the line, but still needed help from another fisherman to get the line off as I held him. I had my eight year old snap a pic before he was put back in the water unharmed.

I went down PINS last weekend to the Port Mansfield jetties and there were a metric shitload of Kemps Ridleys around the jetties. There are quite few of them around the Port A jetties but there were probably 10x more at Port Mansfield. I swear I could see at least 5 at any given time the entire time I was there. I saw a turtle of some sort come up that had like a 3' wing span, it was deffinitely not a kemps ridley. It wasnt close enough for me to tell if it was a logger head or leatherback but it was cool regardless.

At one point, when I was down by the water, I just happened to notice behind me there was a Kemps Ridley stuck in the rocks. It looked like a wave or wake had washed him up in there and he was in a pinch. Pretty sure he was a goner without some assistance so I pulled him out and tossed him out into the open water. I've been fishing on the coast my whole life and have never got to put my hands on a sea turtle, it was pretty cool. The irridescence of the shell is absolutely stunning.

Back in the 70's I lived on SPI. There was a lady there we called the turtle lady. She spent most of her time on the beach during hatching season helping the little turtles find their way to the water. Really, nice lady.
