I guess there is a better than decent chance that this was not an unintentional April Fool's joke. I guess we will see if someone confesses on the 2nd.

For anyone not familiar with a Waterdog, they are considered by many to be the best Bass bait on the planet. Waterdogs are immature Tiger Salamanders, living underwater and breathing through gills. They are generally 5 to 7 inches in length and have been known to catch Big Bass.

We could ship them in lots of 2 to 4 dozen, with a price around 2.50-3.50 per Waterdog, 2nd Day Air shipping included. Please reply if this is something that interests you. I could use some input in making a decision whether or not to take the time and energy required to make this a viable business.

is this up front if so would like more info

Kenneth that appears to be a spotted salamander,not a water dog.
Years ago while fishing the Chattooga river I saw a very vibrant orange spotted newt,that area is quite how should I say full of them.Remember it well even though 20 years ago,as caught the largest brown of my fly fishing attempts on a number 10 stimulator,5 weight rod only 19 in but was a whopper for me.
Most of the waterdogs,hellbenders ive seen came from tributaries of the ohio river muddy green brown with a yellow belly and of course red gills,basically not real colorfull,and I always tookem off with pliers as didnt like the looks of those teeth.
Generally caught at the mouths of creeks just about first of march on live bait 8-12 in long

What really qualifies as a waterdog??? A large brown amphibian or a canine companion who just happens to be in the water??? Or maybe, a person that has been referred to as being a "sly ole dog" who is going for a swim.

These questions I ask myself every night before going to bed, and weigh heavily on my thoughts throughout the day... I mean there must be some scientific analysis somewhere that proves or disproves one or more of the above.

Thought this was a fitting post for having been awol for over a year.

Just where can one get that and does it come in a brown,prefer however to have no trebles underneath.
I think any lizard or newt will work as many are aquatic in nature

Found it when I searched "waterdog" pics. Tylurecustombaits.com but the site doesn't come up.


If you can't find them then maybe one of these might work



Or how about one of these???

First one works quite well for catfish,place cutup bait in a jar sprinkle sweet annis add bloodmeal,let sit a few weeks,wont sit on bottom long at all.The blue cats here like just plain ol hotdog bits.
