It looks like it's complainin' at the fisherman for catching it.

Club on the head with a flashlight and back into the abyss.

Looks like a mud puppy that got on steroids.

I am pretty sure its not photoshoped. I have seen pics of this thing before. I want to say its an Atlantic ocean fish of some sort but I can't recall exactly.

But I know I have seen other pics of it.

yeah - thats a large lumpfish....the smaller ones dont look nearly as alien-like.

Apparently they are well regarded for their "cavier" I dont know if I would eat eggs from that thing...might wake up the next morning with an alien trying to pop out of your chest.

There are times that we may complain about the cold weather here in Minnesota. But it's times like these when you are very thankful to be living in a state that does NOT have these lurking below the surface.

When they are little they are Lumpfish....when they are as big as that one, they are Blimpfish!

Looks like the mother of all Eelpouts! You think that ugly sucker might be able to talk? I bet it's mom thought it was the cutest baby on the reef! eek

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
