I posted the video here originally. I cannot say 100% for sure if this is a "bigfoot" "swamp ape". That being said.. I think if it is.... It does not do any good to compare it to any known animal. Lets say it is a bigfoot for a second than it is a yet to be discovered biped. I also am not sure how much you can put into the tricks of light off the water and think you are seeing something.
I am on the fence about this.. I posted it because I thought it was the best video I have ever seen with a "bigfoot". I think it is better than the Patterson/Gimlin video. Something about the way it is interacting in the wild and the way it moves strikes real and I have no idea why I think that to be so. I watched it the first time and was blown away...
I also think it is not strange the person who filmed this has not come forward and does not seem to be wanting "credit" for the video.

if it were an undescribed species though the morphology would be unknown
the lack of any backstory is starting look very suspicious to me, added to the fact that there have been a couple of very recent hoaxes in the same place
i think the best chance of showing it bogus from the video itself would be a still showing the moment before the feet go into the water - i think i get the hint of a boot but it might be imagination
i find the head movement when it hears the sound oddly convincing though - whatever it is seems genuinely startled

Folks, I have another view point regarding what is happening when the creature is getting up from the sitting position. I'm providing my opinion because earlier in this forum someone stated they think they saw a smaller creature. Perhaps a baby BF.
Upon viewing the video again it's my opinion it's not a small creature but the creature is sitting with its legs pulled up near its chest and with its feet resting on the seat close to its butt. When the creature decides to get up its moving it's feet and legs all at the same time and placing it's feet into the swamp water. This quick movement almost looks like something is there with the creature. For those who are interesting review the film again but use my theory. See what you think then.

Thank you for your efforts. In my opinion, this is a far more valuable approach than mere speculation about whether the video appears "authentic".
I feel the same. Research is what I like to do for fun and digging deep is the only way to find out what is true and what is not. I am hoping the guy that made the video will allow me to contact him, but I am not going to hold my breath.
Either way, I am still very intrigued by this video.

What if this whole thing is a publicity stunt for both Lettuce Lake and "Finding Bigfoot"? The video was sent in by Matt M. or Matt Moneymaker, the host of Finding Bigfoot.

In reply to Deaf aliens video above.....
The more I look at it....the more I am seeing two creatures.
I don't know if they're the same but I definitely see two. At first I thought the " Bigfoot " had caught some other animal and then dragged it off but looking at it again....I'm not sure if it's carrying a creature and then retrieved the same creature out of the water.
This is the latest:
we have established the coordinates to the exact location where the sighting took place.
We also know the equipment he used to record it. It was not a GoPro but an iPhone 6.
Additionally, the identity of the man has been verified. He appears to be telling the truth about that part.
We have updated the articles to reflect those changes.
Again, no word about Matt.
Further research confirmed Matt’s identity. Additionally, Cryptozoology News was able to obtain the coordinates for the exact location where the video was filmed.

My pet cat could last in the wild just fine. Which is more likely, that we're seeing an unknown ape species that has eluded being captured or killed since the 16th century, or that we're seeing a known ape that escaped from captivity?

Here is my take DS and I respect yours. Others have said the same as you. This is a fishing method. First you curl at the water which it does with its hands. This brings a catfish to the top without spooking it to blast away for safety. When the fish gets to the surface it makes a quick and powerful snap at it with its hand kind of like snapping a towel which is evident. This snap is directed to the head. This creature does whack or snap at the water. This will stun the fish but not necessarily kill it. As the fish lies next to it it picks it up at which point the fish goes into convulsions and kicks its tail around which is evident. The tail even hits the water. A snake on the other hand will not thrash its tail about but instead will curl itself up around the arm of the creature. It sure looks like the creature is holding it like you might think it would a fish, and as it walks out you can see still see the tail. I think fish are these creatures favorite source of protein. Many a sighting has been from a witness in the wood line witnessing a Sasquatch with its hands in the water and slapping at the water. Now when you go back and watch with this scenario in mind, you might be able to see what my wife and myself and several others that this was brought out have also.
Incidentally last week on dual survival Matt Graham taught Joe Teti a fishing technique very similar to this. They curled at some brown trout in Southern Utah and got the trout to stay still but the trout did not surface, instead they grabbed them out with both hands.
I would suspect that Sasquatches are masters of this.
