That's pretty neat ! did you set it on the ice and watch it walk back to the whole? The first time I caught one it was about the same size but had big red Gill that hung out its sides are the head I set it on the ground about 20 feet from the water and it walked all the way back.I once had someone tell me that the Michigan record on one of those is like 18 in

It's a walking Turd!  :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: The Necturus maculosus. I've seen other pics from past post of the mudpuppy being caught from Maxi. Every now and then if you have a underwater camera you will see them come through. Salamanders are cool creatures.

Got out last Friday fished from 9am till 5pm, 1 dink perch and 1 rockbass. Did have something attack my camera and seconds after that a walleye came swimming in from the cams direction, only eye I seen. I've had smally's attack my cam at Maxy but this walleye is a first 4me.

Ice was 9" and solid around the launch edge. Wanted to go back out Sat mourn but to windy. With the rain and warm temps I'm est. Culver is probably done, anyone check it out Sunday?

Im hoping to check it out monday or tuesday if i dont hear of anything. Running arronds today, a lot of stuff looks as if it didnt get beat uo too bad. Some open edges and that, to be normal of course. We certainly didnt get as much rain as they were calling for.

Deffinetly on the last few days anyways, but maybe i can squeeze one or 2 more trips in yet. Just maybe. 😁

The walleye bite was for about 20 min, right at dark. All small but a bunch of them.
