Tales from the Quest: CT River Monster

As the quest begins to focus on the last hard-to-find species, we thought we would start a series called "Tales from the Quest" that recounts some of the more memorable moments of the year.

This one occurred while we were on the CT River fishing for northern pike.

The river looked good that morning near the Cheiftain Motor Inn.

We had a nice mist on the water, the sky was overcast and the crocodile was out for his morning swim.

 When we first saw it we laughed and said that really looks like a 20 foot croc. Crikey!

After closer inspection we were reassured it was a section of pine that had washed in from the hurricane.  Or was that what he wanted us to think?
