This is a weird bug that my kids and I found in Northern Wisconsin at a cabin by the Radisson Flowage. During our 3 night stay over Memorial Day weekend 2012 we found 4 of these critters running around. Please help us know what it is. Thanks

Hi Clint,
This is a Hellgrammite, the larva of a Dobsonfly, and they are generally found close to water.  Hellgrammites are a favored bait for freshwater anglers.  We will be scheduling your letter to post live to our site later in the week as we will be on holiday.
