  • uh?

  • I got a turtle right here and its buried in these sticks

  • but I definitely have the back of its tail

  • he's deep though, I don't know it I'm gonna get him

  • ah!

  • he's up underneath this log

  • Are you messing with me? NOPE! I definitely have a turtle this would be a terrible prank.

  • ah I'm losing him...wait here he comes here he comes!

  • look at that there he is

  • AH!

  • I'm in a beaver dam trying to get this turtle out of here

  • watch your camera here he comes

  • alright got him out got him out come on! He keeps pulling me down...

  • there he is there he is

  • NO way! hahahaha

  • thats what you call digging a dragon

  • out of a beaver dam! I'm Coyote Peterson

  • welcome to Dragon Tails!

  • Roann, Indiana...

  • is just as one might picture a small peaceful town

  • set in the heart of rural America

  • as you enter through the mouth of

  • an old covered bridge

  • it feels as if you're traveling back to a time

  • when life was much more simplistic

  • a peaceful place where one can stop and escape the fast pace of today

  • and transcend into the days of old. A time when stories captured our imaginations

  • grand tales of giant turtles that lurked in the lakes around town

  • I firmly believe that there is a world record turtle in Roann

  • Indiana area no one fishes for them to speak of

  • and they can be there for years and years so its a real good chance

  • and those who listen believed every last word

  • we captured cornelius and the giant known as stump beak

  • these are massive turtles living dinosaurs

  • modern-day dragons

  • everyone has a dragon tale but not many people

  • have the photographs to prove what their eyes have seen

  • Bill Haywood this one of the rare exceptions

  • a man who lives for adventure in the outdoors he's been capturing

  • and releasing snapping turtles for over 40 years

  • using safe traps bill has encountered hundreds of these prehistoric looking reptiles

  • but it wasn't until a year ago when a massive dragon destroyed one his traps

  • bringing him to the realization that he needed to build something

  • that could capture a legend. yeah if you wanna catch

  • a big turtle, you gotta bring a big trap

  • so that's what we did we built a big trap. Bill dreams of landing a world record size turtle

  • and the good news is that he knows exactly

  • where one might live. oh yeah he's here I don't think

  • left he's lived he all his life I'm sure hidden deep in the wilds of Roann

  • is a forest encompassed lake that has gone untouched by humans

  • for over 70 years

  • they never let anybody in here to turtle hunt before

  • if they live to be seventy/eighty years old there's a turtle here seventy to eighty years old

  • Bill has gotten permission to explore

  • and safe this ancient body of water a place where he believes

  • that a 100-pound dragon is lurking beneath the surface

  • a place that is known as Lost Lake

  • you feel like you're going to catch a dinosaur right now?

  • yes I do I feel like

  • this that moment jurassic park when they say

  • loading team step away gatekeeper

  • move in and so how does this work how are we going to catch world record turtle in this?

  • the turtles they'll zero in on that bait bucket

  • so as they try to get in they come to this opening

  • and theres what theyre zeroed in on...the bait bucket

  • they'll tear it up getting the fish out of it

  • then turns around to leave and can't find his way out

  • and that's the idea the safetrap is that the turtles don't get injured they don't

  • drown

  • there's plenty room for them to come up and breath and then you've got a door in

  • the top

  • which when we get turtle you open that up and take it out now this is

  • enormous you could fit a 300-pound turtle inside of this trap

  • we know the common snapping turtles largest on record United States was 88

  • pounds

  • you're thinking there's a hundred-pound turtle living in lost lake, if we can catch

  • that turtle

  • we're gonna catch a world record. Alright well lets get this loaded up on the boat

  • and

  • head out into the wilds of Lost Lake its the lost world out here

  • to enter the realm of Lost Lake

  • we first had to travel nearly half a mile down a narrow feeder channel

  • kayaking through the duckweed I pictured myself as a character

  • in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's lost world my mind traveling back 65 million years

  • to a place in time were giants once ruled the earth

  • I'm already lookin I mean this turtle could be anywhere out here

  • be on your guard at any moment you might just see me spring off this kayak

  • to catch a turtle. We forged over beaver dams

  • bye guys

  • thanks man! we encountered snakes

  • woah it gets deep in a hurry

  • we even caught our first turtle

  • as we lived what most would consider a nightmare

  • you always say we wish we had your job look at me now

  • with the goal of making it to a prehistoric looking paradise

  • that could potentially be hiding

  • within its murky waters an ancient world record sized turtle

  • its tough to not

  • jump out of the boat to start...

  • ah its a log!

  • I hit that, I thought it was a huge turtle

  • after two hours of mud

  • and four beaver dams later we had finally arrived

  • I can see just through the trees there its Lost Lake

  • this is we're gonna catch an enormous snapping turtle lets get into it

  • we made it!

  • nice work Bill

  • this is crazy... wow bill you weren't kidding

  • I feel like we've traveled back in time this is

  • unreal...huge lily pads

  • there's a great blue heron flying on the far side there ancient looking trees

  • and a GIANT dragon

  • out there in those waters. The folklore is the Indians

  • up on this ridge right here...they lived there

  • and they would send hunters down

  • and they wouldn't come back

  • that was 100s years ago. So they named it

  • lost lake that's how it got its name

  • it is impossible to describe in words what I felt as my kayak

  • cut across the waters of Lost Lake

  • knowing that I was the first human other than Bill

  • to explore these waters in nearly 100 years

  • we're all anxious to get after this giant turtle and as we search for a place to

  • set the trap

  • bill told us about the day that he had his epic encounter

  • one of the traps when we came back had two nice snappers in it

  • the other trap had a hole towards the back of it

  • he almost left an imprint of the shell as he passed through the wire

  • how big would you say a turtle would have to be to do that?

  • big as wide as that hole was...you could see that his shell rubbed the sides

  • I' guessing that hes 100 lbs

  • you think theres a 100 turtle in here? I really do, yeah...

  • Bill prepped his secret bait recipe, however the carp is the only part we can show you

  • as we released the dragon trap into the water my mind raced with visions

  • of what it would be like if we actually caught a 100-pound turtle

  • a good set right there. thats perfect

  • just enough space for the turtles to come up and breath

  • right up against the weed bed

  • now the waiting game begins

  • two and a half hours from now there might be a world record turtle in there

  • mmm right now

  • Bill and Mark are taking a break in shade

  • I just refuse to go in and wait

  • we've got to trap set I just keep envisioning this moment when

  • I'm moving in the kayak in all of sudden I see that shadow underwater

  • just like in Jaws see it going under the boat

  • jumping in and grabbing hold of that turtle even without the other cameras here

  • it would still be crazy

  • I'm gonna keep lookin we're gonna get him

  • Encountering a snapping turtle

  • is far easier said done and I'm used to the constant search

  • cruising the waters on my kayak staking out the lily pads

  • searching with binoculars for dragons

  • the waiting game can sometimes feel

  • like forever

  • Bills method of encountering dragons is quite a bit different

  • his strategy is to wait and let the trap

  • do all of the work

  • after a few hours had passed we headed back out onto the water

  • to see if the trial run was a success

  • could we have captured the legend Lost Lake on our first attempt?

  • the trap was about to tell us. Could be a world record sitting right down there

  • could be an enormous turtle in there right now

  • feel heavy? yeah it does

  • got one

  • holy cow look at that!

  • wow thats a pretty big turtle

  • holy cow he was no world record but our first catch

  • was a very healthy turtle

  • proof positive

  • that the dragons were lurking in Lost Lake

  • ah hes slicing me up...razor sharp claws. there you go that is the first

  • first official dragan

  • right out of Lost Lake we caught one

  • earlier in the channel but boy that is a

  • good-lookin' turtle right there

  • I can only imagine how big they're growing in here. covered in algae

  • just like the other one these turtles are ancient

  • man a sharp beak...beautiful reptile

  • if this is any indication

  • as to whats ahead of us I feel really good

  • about our chances of landing an enormous snapping turtle

  • now do you consider this a big turtle? no

  • no not for this lake he's a he seems healthy and fat

  • he just a really nice looking turtle but um

  • compared to some of the others I've caught here no he's no comparison

  • so the monster's still out there that

  • all right we gotta get the giant trap back into the water

  • so we can catch the giant dragon I named this guy Randy

  • cuz you guys know I name them all lets put him back in the wild

  • and hopefully overnight we get the big boy

  • here he goes ready? I'm gonna let him just plop off the side

  • see you later buddy

  • now the real test could the trap draw in

  • capture and hold a world record turtle?

  • 12 hours from now we would find out all these years of anticipation this might be

  • it

  • oh yeah there's something in there...there's definitely something in there

  • its huge somethings in the bottom of this thing

  • geez I've never had this problem before

  • THATS A HUGE TURTLE!

  • that could be the 100lb turtle! next time

  • on Dragon Tails

uh?
