Russel and I are on the LR this past weekend, trying out our new waders and we were at the one lane bridge near the Back Porch. I'm looking around in the water and about 4 feet from me is what I thought was a trout. I thought hear fishy,fishy,fishy. I started to cast when I saw it move real slow. I thought I was seeing things. IT ws Crawling. I leaned forward slightly and stared. Then I freaked out. It didn't look natural and I wanted out! It was a good 12" and had a [for a lack of a better description] a catfish type head sorta flat but curved in the front then pushed. It had legs one on each side and a tail similar to a gator [once again for lack of a better description]. It crawled one way and I beelined for the shore. Anyone have a clue what that was.
