We found this bug in the shallows of the Grand River in NE Ohio in early november. Only the 1st 3 pairs of protrusions are legs, the rest are just spines. 4 inches long end-to-end.
Never seen anything like it. What is it?

Hi Ian,
The aquatic Hellgrammite, the larva of the winged Dobsonfly, is a favored bait of freshwater fishermen.
