That's pretty cool! Weird that it smells like pepper. I guess if you grilled or cooked it you would just add salt.
We have something similar here in our lakes & rivers called a Hellbender(water dog). I caught one when I was fishing back in '90 that was almost 4
feet long. It was nowhere near as big as the one you posted, though. They're a cross between salamanders, catfish and eel. Strange creatures.
