Hard to say because there are three species of the so-called water turtles in Florida that go by the name 'cooter' and have a yellow stripe(s) on the face, the Suwannee Cooter, the River Cooter and the Florida turtle.

Since the picture says it is taken south of Tampa/St/ Pete, I would guess the Florida cooter. It's the most common of the three.
