Wow! I have never seen or heard that.. Very interesting. Definitely means I have more YP than I thought I did.
Thank you

Only 1/3 of my YP morts ended up floating - the rest were never seen per Cody.

Iíve seen zero floaters. Only two painted turtles are regularly hanging out. Iím guessing Iím not losing any, or just a few. Weíve caught a lot over the years, but nowhere near the original stocking numbers. I was thinking of adding some, now Iíll wait.
Thx TJ
