    dang and just think those turtles made it to the blue water,mother nature is a b itch
  • Never seen that many in one fish, but I have seen a belly full before.

    Best is the Muttons off Stuart when the turtles are hatching. Not legal but catch one, cut him open and use the dead turtle for bait and it won't last in the water 2 minutes!

    My thoughts exactly! Amazing that so many made it out deep together.

    well the turtle when they are young like to hang around weed lines as it provides shelter and food for them. the dolphin normally hang around them as well since the bait is there. not the first time i seen that.

    If it wasn't like that the oceans would be overrun with turtles. They took man as a predator out of the equation so it's more for the fishys.

    First of all, who cleans a fish like that? Looks kind of posed, if you ask me.

    "Oh... just a guy hunched over with a knife gutting his dolphin on the dock"

    My guess is they cleaned one smaller dolphin off the same area of grass and it had a few. Then another dolphin and it had some. Then they took the stomach contents of 3 or 4 and laid them next to a split belly of their biggest dolphin.

    Just a thought.

    Either way, yeah... dolphin kill way more turtles than condo lights.

    I think I remember seeing a similar pic w/a guy cleaning a Cobia in S.Fl. that had a belly full of turtles...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!
  • I guess you could just skip the fish as the middle man....

    Costa Rica is a GREAT place to eat turtle!

    Florida used to be....
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.
