Noodling: How to avoid snapping turtles?

Iv gone noodling a few times and luckily never been bitten by a snapping turtle.. my friend however, who now only has 3 fingers on his right hand, hasn't been so lucky. my question is.. how do you avoid these buggers? how do you know what hole has a flathead in it and what hole has a snapping turtle in it?

Also.. do you think heavy duty gloves would protect against snapping turtles? i know its harder to grab the fish that way.. but **** id wear them if it will save my fingers!

    The best way to avoid the snapping turtles, is to keep your hands where you can see then, as well as what is within 12" of your hands & fingers
