Bessie Caught On Tape

Dirk Vander Ploeg's picture


George Repicz believes he has captured some sort of animal swiming in Lake Erie. We are trying to get a copy of the videotape. If you know someone who has a copy please contact the editor.

"In July 1991 my family and I spent a week at a family camp on Kelley's Island I took my camcorder to film family events and local scenery. On one of the days during that week and after filming all over the camp, I decided to get a good sun set on film. The picture through the lens did not look that great because the camera I was using did not amplify the light like some newer ones do these days. So I decided to scan the bay for something interesting when by chance I came across this (I believe was a swimming creature) moving object in the bay.

This is not George's video but another I found on the Internet.

The bay at the point where I shot the film is about 1 plus miles across. Around the bay is about 3 to 5 miles. The people who were fishing or boating in the scene were close to the state camp grounds across the bay. Im not aware if any of those people saw what I saw. The people next to me could barely see the object in the water with there eyes. The camcorder was zoomed out to max and the object appears closer than it is. When our week ended we went home. That was the last time that we went to that camp.

In 1993 my mother passed away so I tried to gather all possible film clips of her to share with my brothers and sister. It so happened that the scene of the creature was also part of the over all family film that I took. By chance I saw this clip again but soon forgot about it again. I think in either 1994 or 1995 I saw a program on TV about some a creature in Lake Erie. I remember seeing the wake or wave that people took pictures of that was suppose to be the creature. I remembered that at the end of the clip I took of the swimming creature was the same wake.

At the end of 1997 I happened to be on the net and decided to search for sea creatures when I came across the Cryptozoology zone web site and then discovered your site."
