What kind of turtle do most of the ponds in the metro area have in them. My son reeled in a 6" turtle from Kenter today. Never seen a turtle caught on a fishing pole before. Played hell get the hook out damn thing keep bite the hemostats. It was release unharmed.

I mostly see snapping turtles, the occasional softshell, and red ear sliders that people probably release since they are not native species.
