My brother bow-fishes.
He bagged what appeared to be a giant minnow.
This was in a creek in Texas hill-country.
It was between 7 and 8 foot long. I would guess around 60 lbs.
Tasted like 3 day old gumbo. Very oily and fishy.
Not really what I would call "edible."
The raccoons, a.k.a. "trash pandas," cleaned it up.


Could it have been a big ass shad?

I think a grass carp is a prime candidate. Not a shad. en.wikipedia.org...

Here is the link to a news article about Tom D'Onofrio and his sighting of a sea serpent at Agate Beach on August 30, 1976.

Tom was the first eyewitness to come forward and report a modern sighting of a sea serpent off the coast of Northern California.

We were in contact with Tom for many years but unfortunately he passed away a few years ago.

"The Clark Brothers Embark on a Mission

The Clark brothers’ fascination with the San Francisco Bay Sea Serpent began on the morning of February 5, 1985 while they were sipping coffee parked along the shore side walkway at Marina Green in San Francisco. They observed some sea lions cavorting about 150 yards offshore directly in front of them, and while they were watching the group of sea lions they noticed what they thought was another sea lion approaching the group. When it got within a few yards of the group of sea lions it suddenly raised its head and a portion of its body approximately 10 feet straight up out of the water and then it lunged forward into the group of sea lions. The sea lions scattered with one of them making a mad dash for the shoreline in front of their car.

As it was being chased by the large serpentine marine animal, the sea lion swam over a submerged rocky ledge that, due to an extremely high tide that day, was covered by about three feet of water. The creature’s pursuit of the sea lion caused it to crash onto the submerged rocky ledge, partially exposing itself approximately 20 yards away from where the stunned brothers were sitting in their car. "

What a hoot!!



This story, and the op's, are my two favorite sea monster sightings!

My favorite Sea serpent/Lake Monster is the Ogopogo. The Ogopogo lives in Lake Okanagan in British Columbia Canada near the cities of Kelowna, Penticton and the Mountains of BC. Ogopogo is a real life Lake Monster not just a made up story.

We know more about space(very little), than we do our own ocean. Estimates put it somewhere around 95-96% unexplored.



I just don't believe this statement. 95-96% unexplored? We know more about space (which goes on infinite) then the Ocean? I just can't believe that, sorry.
