BIGFOOT 'NOODLING' For Catfish in Raystown Lake, Pennsylvania

A camper was along Raystown Lake in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania when he observed a large Bigfoot dipping into the water. He realized that the creature was 'noodling.'

I received the following account:

“I'm in South Florida now, but I spent most of my life in Pennsylvania. We were at an out-of-the-way area along Raystown Lake, in Huntingdon County, and we would be camping out and we weren't looking for Bigfoot. It was spring 2022. I didn't even know there was a Bigfoot. We were looking for firewood. It was about 2:00 in the morning and, long story short, we saw this creature in the water and it looked like it was, actually, it looked like it was fishing. You know, like feeling around with your hand, like people who catch catfish with their hands. It is called 'noodling.' It looked like it was doing that and it was just doing things that weren't normal.

At first, we thought it was a person, but it was a real mucky bottom, it's a backwater and early morning. It's like three or four feet deep and it would go all the way down, so just like only his nostrils would be out. He'd stay there for 2-3 minutes, then stand up, and move around.

We soon realized it wasn't a person. I went down to get a closer look and when I got down to the water's edge, and it stood up, it was so huge and massive, and I couldn't tell, you know - it was a creature! I couldn't see distinct details but it was a really large creature and it was like a man.

I strained to get a better look because I couldn't believe what I was looking at and I was probably like 40 feet from it. I was kind of hiding behind some brush and stuff. I stepped on a twig and in an instant it headed out of the water, probably 30 feet from shore and in a mucky mud environment. In 3-4 feet of water, you'd usually strain and struggle to get out of that water. It just moved out like it was a bird skimming the water. Just instantly, it was out of the water and on the bank.

When it reached shore, it quickly walked into the forest. It had two large fish, looked like catfish, by the mouth in each hand.” M

JEEPERS! DO HORROR FILM 'CREEPERS' EXIST? Please Join Us For LIVE Chat Q & A - Lon Strickler (Host)

I have investigated winged humanoid sightings since 1981 when I first included cryptid creatures as a part of my paranormal research. In 1988, I had a personal unexplained encounter with a winged humanoid in south-central Pennsylvania.

Since the beginning of the millennium, a specific term has surfaced as part of the description of several of the sightings; ‘Jeepers Creepers.’ If you are familiar with modern horror films, then you’ll have an idea of what I’m talking about. In 2001, an American-German horror film, that took its name from the 1938 song ‘Jeepers Creepers,’ was released. It was a tale about two older siblings who become the targets of a demonic creature, known as the ‘Creeper,’ in rural Florida.

The fact that several witnesses have compared the winged being that they encountered as resembling the Creeper is interesting. I suppose it is a cultural phenomenon; basically, because there are few other creatures, natural or fictional, to compare to. A few of the Chicago Mothman witnesses mentioned the Creeper character when giving a general description, though the eventual comparison came down to the bat-like wing structure and the ability to instantly launch itself into flight.

During the same period that we were receiving reports in the Chicago area, we were also receiving accounts of similar winged beings in other locations throughout the United States and Canada. Most of the sightings were very brief and without much detail, but a few specific reports compounded our curiosity.

I hope that you enjoy my presentation. I will answer questions from the LIVE CHAT throughout the show.
