Great thread! I've been smiling all the way through. I've done the turtles, and told the story of my mallard duck on here before, but I think the wierdest was actually a fish. A few years back I was casting for striped bass on the spawning run and hooked a Bowfin. He was about 3 pounds and fought better than a Smallmouth but that's one of the oddest creatures I've ever seen. Once I got him in the boat he excreted a green slime that was the foulest smelling thing you could imagine and it took a few days to get the funk off the boat.
