$50,000 prize offered for proof of legendary monster 'Pepie' in Lake Pepin

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Now that the ice has melted off of Lake Pepin, Larry Nielson wants to remind people there’s something lurking in the blue-green waters – and he’s willing to pay you to prove it exists.

Located on the Mississippi River, Lake Pepin is bordered by Wisconsin on one side and Minnesota on the other. In the town of Lake City, Minnesota (population 5,261 as of 2019) on Lake Pepin’s shores, tales of a monster in the lake have been floating around since the 1870s. 

Supposedly a large, serpent-like creature, the monster – or Pepie, as the locals call it – has been seen by everyone from the Dakota Indians to local vacationers.

It sounds just as nebulous and unprovable as Nessie. 

The one thing about Nessie, Pepie et al, you just can't get a revealing photo because most of it is underwater. a shame.

"Now Nielson, the owner of the 125-passenger paddle wheel boat Pearl of the Lake, and president of the Lake City Tourism Bureau, is reminding people that there’s a $50,000 reward for anyone who can prove Pepie exists."

Shocked, shocked I say...

"Nielson said he didn’t know the water serpent existed until he saw the creature a few years back."

Well of course, after he crunched the numbers and realized the financial bump he could get for the morons who actually believe this nonsense. Especially after what I'm sure was a devastating year from Covid.
