Over the summer, my cousin Louise and her father, my cousin Jack and his father, and me and my father went on a fishing trip to Canada. It was Canada Day while we were there, which is july 1st. There were a lot of fireworks and we all decided to go onto our dock and watch. This particular night was very clear and cold.
The fireworks were having the grand finale when all of us thought we heard something on the other dock. It sounded as if someone had just cast their line into the water. Of course, all the dads acted as if they never heard anything, but we knew they did because when it happened everyone went silent to see what it was. All of the kids got together and asked each other if we had heard the splash. We all heard it! Then all of a sudden a fish started splashing franticly. It was at the top of the surface and moving towards the opposite dock! Very much like someone was pulling it in! Along with the fish splashing, there was a sort of cranking noise. We looked over to the opposite dock and there was no one there! We were stunned!
The dads started yelling over trying to see if someone was actually there we couldn't see. There was no answer. We all hurried of the dock and ran back to the cabin. After everyone had settled down a bit, we decided to go to the main house. The house was far away up a hill. We were all really scared to go up there, but we had to tell them something. We all started our journey to the main house. We were practically running because we were so scared. We just kept our eyes in front of us hoping there would be nothing like what we heard on the dock.
When we got to the main house, we told them about what we had heard on the dock. They said that people had told them that they heard similar things. Then Tinker, the owner of where we were staying, said he had heard the same thing himself. Most of the time people told them about what they had heard was on July 1st, around the same time of day.
