This Report has taken this long because my witness was not willing to talk about it.

We were fishing on the old Draw bridge in the early morning when we were hit with a spotlight..We thought it was a barge coming up the Intercostal waterway from the south.We started gathering our gear from the draw so as not to hold up the bridgetender from raising the bridge.As the spotlight swept bank to bank we continued fishing,,as we waited for the barge the spotlight came closer and then we realized that this light was from tree level,alot higher than a barge tower.

As the light approched the drawbridge almost directly overhead it did not make a sound no noise light now off,,no breese Nothing!!!!!!If we had not of watched this dark triangle come up the river we would of never noticed it.

I have always wanted to see a U.F.O. and now that i was looking stright up at the bottom of this thing a calm came over me,We watched this triangle 100 feet above us and just sitting still very dim lights,metalic,triangle shaped..

You have to understand I should of been going nuts ,finally seeing a ufo but no...

I could of walked acrossed the bridge and asked the bridgetender to call somebody but no.. The thought never entered my mind..

I remember leaning back on the railing of the bridge and watching my bait swin around the pilings while this silent dark object hovered over my brother in law and me..

As we continued to glance up and to fish the object started assending see it had to clear the High tension wires on the north side of the bridge..

It tripled it's height and whenit cleared the wires it slowly started moving north and then resumed scanning the banks of the river until it disappered around a bend..

We went back to fishing as if nothing had happened..

My witness told me when we were leaving that he never wanted this brought back up and that he never wanted to talk about it,, until now..
