Identification Help

I was fishing the Mississippi River in Sauk Rapids tonight and this goose/ or whatever it is came swimming by and nobody around us knew what it was. Any ID would be great thanks guys. Sorry if its not clear I had to zoom in quite a bit.

that there is a bona-fide farm goose...could be what they call a "greylag" goose or whatever but it isn't wild and surely cannot fly.

How was the fishing? We managed a few suckers and carp in about an hour on the riv tonight

we kinda figured thats what it was when it struggled to cross the river and never tried flying.

we were at the canoe access where the sauk river comes in, not much biting around there tonight.

thanks and i guess i won't be naming a new species. haha!! grin.gif

you're right IRISHSOBNO4. i googled african goose and the pic that came up was exact. now i wonder who's goose wandered far enough to get between the sartell and st. cloud dams. needless to say it definately looked lost!!

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
