My father and I were fishing on Lake Monticello in East Texas, when he
spotted an unusual animal in the water. I did not see it and was kidding
with father about what he said he saw, when after a few minutes it raised
it's head slightly out of the water again maybe 20 feet from the boat.
It had the color of a beaver and about the size of a basketball. This happened
again eight to ten times, it was going away from us and I was following
with the trolling motor. The last encounter it stayed under for maybe ten
minutes, then emerged from waist up about fifty yards in front of the boat.
It was very large 500-700 lb., it stared at us for around a minute then
went back under. We stayed in the area for some time and never saw it again.
It looked like a large ape, it was not a man or scuba diver, we do not
know what it was.
of Witness: We were bass fishing
of Creature: It was very large,
it's head was about the size of a basketball, it's shoulders were twice
the size of a normal man. It's color was like a beaver, a rusty brown and

We told my brother-in-law, the story of what we had seen, about a year

told the group of an experience he had at the same lake, similar to ours.
