Another personal best...

...or actually first. Caught this diamondback terrapin turtle...it is over 2' long...in the back lakes of west bay! The redfish are getting that beautiful coloring to them. Nice day and sunset on the water today...

Looks like a Green Sea turtle to me. Interesting that it would be back in the bays.

Yes, I think so too. A friend chimed in when I posted it on Fb and called it a diamondback terrapin. Once I got home and did a little research, I knew it wasn't given it's size...and the fact it had back flippers and not feet. It's beyond me too why it was way back in there, but nothing surprises me anymore after catching a large seahorse (twice) and a stone crab in a crab trap off the bank in a channel at a friends house in Sea Isle a week before hurricane Rita.

I assume you immediately released the turtle.

Personally I don’t think this deserves a response.

What is surprising about the stonecrab and the seahorses? They're both very common.


I've seen over a dozen green sea turtles in one day along the ICW in West Bay, near Harborwalk. They work the backside of those spoil islands...just like the reds/trout.
