Lol... so it looks like a salamander. WHat were you fishing with, and where?

I dont really know what kind that is, but it could be a large tiger salamander...but they live in wetlands and that looks like it is more than 14 inches. The only time there in water is breeding, but it could be.

"Thick-bodied amphibians with short snouts, sturdy legs, and long tails, tigers are the largest land-dwelling salamander on Earth. They can grow to 14 inches (35 centimeters) in length, but the average size is more like 6 to 8 inches (15.2 to 20.3 centimeters).
They are also the most wide-ranging salamander species in North America, living throughout most of the United States, southern Canada, and eastern Mexico. They live in deep burrows, up to two feet (60 centimeters) below the surface, "

Man, thats my old neck of the woods! I used to spend time at my buddy's Uncle's farm in Pittsville. We fished Pike in the Yellow river and panfish through the ice at ..... crap I forgot the name of that shallow little lake out there..... The river came right out of or flowed right into he lake.......

u mean fish lake?
Might be fish lake, don't remember the name of it, we usually fished the river(s). Folks at the bait shop always told us the lake was real shallow and nobody really caught much out of there.

Some good pike and walleye in the river(s) to be had when everything else is froze over...... :wink:
