Went fishing...er...Mud Puppy-ing
« on: Nov 21, 2020, 08:27 AM »
Hit the river for a few hours last night to chase some cats, but who knew that just the dogs were out...well...puppies?  I've never seen one of these things live, but I had to untangle that dude from the line and he was incredibly uncooperative.  Pretty cool to see one.  Check this guy out...

I will never forget catching the first one I ever saw. Back in the younger days sitting on the bank of the river with a few friends drinking beer. Brought that thing up to the lantern light packed up our stuff and left. Thought it something muting

mud  puppys  are  cool  but harmless  remove  the  hook  with as little  harm as  possible  and  let the  ugly guy  go ...remember they are protected in  nys so  don't  be  taking one  home to  show  off the  baby sea monster you caught
you can destroy buildings  you can't  destroy the  american spirit

Yes, they are very cool and protected.  Caught one on Sandy Ponds while ice fishing.  It made a croaking noise, kinda walking around before I put it back down the hole after removing the hook.  I think they are a kind of salamander?
