Full Description of event/sighting: My brother, father
and I were fishing at a place called Dillon Dam. We have fished in this area
our entire lives and know the area very well. I am not exactly sure what time
it was, but it was around 10:00
p.m. All three of us were sitting by the water's edge with our fishing
poles in the water. There were no stars or moon that evening so it was pitch
black out and we were using a Coleman lantern for our light. These lights
work great, but the one problem is it is so bright,
it does limit your night vision beyond the area it illuminates. The area where
we were fishing is a small bay. I had fished this area for decades and had
even waded in it once because a fish had pulled my pole in. As I had waded in
it, I know the water is
only about 3-4 feet deep throughout most of this bay (we fish for carp
-not to eat, just for fun).
Anyway, suddenly, right in front of us, it sounded as if
something "huge" was coming out of the water. Later when we talked
about it, my brother mentioned something as big as a house, but that was just
because that was the biggest thing he could think of. It sounded as if an
aircraft carrier was emerging from the water. You could sense it rising up out of the water, but we
could not see it. You
could also hear the water falling back down off of the object, back to the
No one said a word, but instinctively, we all rushed
backwards about 15 yards or so. My brother is a guy who fancy's himself a
Daniel Boone type guy. He is an avid outdoorsman and hunter. I have never in
my life seen him scared of anything. Standing there, I looked over at him as
we stood there, and he was standing there with his pistol pointed to the
water. I did not even know he had a pistol. But again, no words were said, we
were sitting there and
something absolutely huge came out of the water, without a word, we
all rushed backwards, I looked over at my brother and he was pointing a gun
at the water.
The water rushed
down off of the unseen object. You could tell the object was rising due to
the sound of the water falling back to the lake. We stood there, totally scared
to death for a few minutes, never heard a sound, no animals, no birds, nothing. Without
our poles we rushed to the car and left. We left our tackle-box, poles,
light, everything. I tried to talk about it, but after a few minutes of just
absolute atonement, my father and brother said they never wanted this
