    Giant Turtle caught in Pennsylvania pond

     
    I caught this giant snapping turtle while fishing in a small pond located in East Norriton, PA. There are usually bass and some other small fish in this pond. I never expected to catch anything like this. He was a common snapping turtle and must have been 60 lb plus. Not to be mistaken by the alligator snapping turtle.
    It took me more than half an hour to land him in. The turtle was released back into the pond.
