My cousin and I were fishing at this lake called Lake Missouri when my
cousin noticed something in the water on the other side of the lake.
He explained it to look like a whale's side fin raising up and splashing
down in a violent manner. I heard the splash, but I figured it was
a fish or something jumping in the water. So i scanned the lake for
about 10 to 15 minutes, when i noticed an extremely large black fin, curving
backwards and wide in size, raise out of the water in an upward motion,
and splashing down causing a panic over the water. The fin looked
like a thick, shiny black leather, coming to curving point facing
the rear of the creature. After I witnessed that splash, before I
could even comment on it, the creature did it again. After the second
sighting by myself, the third by my cousin, we noticed a large head emerge
from the water, attached to a snake like neck. the head was at least
5 to 6 feet long. The creature then splashed his head down into the
water, raised his head and tail at the same time, and splashed again.
From head to tail, the creature seemed to be the size of two 18 wheelers.
We watched in amazement. After about 10 minutes, we sighted the creature
again, this time he was moving along the top of the water like a snake.
As I watched him move toward us, my cousin observed another creature just
like the first one, smaller in size, moving toward us from a different
direction. We quickly gathered our fishing equipment, and moved to
the top of the hill away from the water. As we reached the top of
the hill, the creature once again raised his head and splashed it down
into the water. This time, when he raised his head, it looked as
if he was looking at us. After the splash of the head, he disappeared
into the middle of the lake. We went back to the lake with my nephew
about a month later, and we all witnessed the same thing. The creature
splashed his fins violently in the water, and then head toward us in a
swift manner. We once again gathered our gear and ran to the top
of the hill. We haven't been back to the lake since.
of Witness: We were fishing
and relaxing when the sighting occurred.
of Creature: From head to toe, it
was the size of about two 18 wheelers. It had a snake like neck and
tail. Just below the neck, maybe close to the middle of the body
on the side was a fin. The fin was a thick, black leather looking
fin, that came up to a point and curved towards the rear of the creature.
As it got closer, we noticed it had 2 fins, one on both sides. The
body was a huge, immense shadow in the water. The head was at least
7 feet long, and shaped like snake head, with black eyes on the side.
Notes: I noticed that
on the other side of the lake are cows. As long as we have fished
there, the cows never come down to the water to drink, despite the scorching
heat. The stay at the top of the hill, and watch the lake as if they
are waiting for something to happen. We also found the remains of
an alligator, about 5 feet in length ripped into 3 pieces and basically
torn inside out at the edge of the bank.
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
We noticed it twice. We asked about 10 different people in Kemper
County about it, and they either witnessed it, or someone they know has
witnessed the creature.
