Shingle Creek Monster: A catfish or more?

Forty years ago, on November eighth,  people in the Shingle Creek area may have had a real monster on their hands.

I followed Frank Carroll’s footsteps when writing about this mysterious creature, nicknamed the “Loch Shingle Monster”, which doesn’t flow like the Loch Ness Monster.  Many people that lived in the area brushed off the beliefs that it could have been something other than a very large catfish. Many made it a personal goal to catch the moster of Shingle Creek, but they all came up empty handed.
