Finding Bigfoot: Jim "Bobo" McCoy Is An Argonaut Fan?

Humboldt County Night Scream Expedition
Memorial Day Weekend 2003 

Jim "Bobo" McCoy or we know him as James "Bobo" Fay is the big guy from Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot show, but did you know that he's also into rock music? Looks like he's still got some connections with a rock group named "Argonaut". On Argonaut's Facebook Wall Post it said Bobo had ask them to submitt a song for a "Squatch comp". We wonder if Animal Planet is going to use the song for the show's intro, or maybe they can mix it into some chase scenes like the one from the "Caught on Tape" episode where Matt Moneymaker decides to chase after a Sasquatch by himself.

Argonaut Facebook Post:
Jim "Bobo" McCoy is a world famous Bigfoot hunter and also an Argonaut fan from the old days. Friends of the band have no doubt heard stories about him. Now he has a reality TV show. Bobo told us to submitt a song for a "Squatch comp". We told him we didn't have any songs about Bigfoot. He told us to re-record one of our songs with Bigfoot lyrics. We did not do this, and I don't think that comp ever came out.

A song by the band titled: Who Is That Is?

About Argonaut:
Hometown: Tacoma, WA
Genres: Rock / Alternative Metal / Punk
Label: Violent Hippy Records
Members: Brandon Boote - Drums, Matt Sader - Bass/Vocals, Dave Takata - Guitar, Trina Walker - Guitar

A heavy rock band from Tacoma, Wa that has been compered to the Melvins, Kyuss, and such with a punk twist. The LP "Shoot The Moon" has recieved much acclaim and the EP "The Good Times and the Bad Times" is a Seattle radio mainstay on KEXP. The band has performed live on KEXP radio, toured the west coast, and played with many heavy hitters in the heavy rock realm.

Bobo's Bio below:

James Fay is commonly, if not almost exclusively, known to the world as “Bobo.” The origins of that name are shrouded in mystery, as is much of Bobo's life, but it seems to have been born from a variation of the name, “Jimbo,” derived from the nick name “Jim.” Whatever the genesis, Bobo is his functional moniker today.

Bobo was born and raised in Manhattan Beach, CA, and has been interested in the bigfoot mystery for as long as he can remember. As a teen, he became interested in big-wave surfing, and this would take him to the best surf spots up and down the entire West Coast. Soon, he would take surf trips to bigfoot habitat in order to get a chance to maybe see a bigfoot from the beach.

At some point, Bobo became a roadie for the band Sublime, and this gave him an opportunity to travel the country while touring and gather bigfoot reports from all corners of the country. This is a key aspect to Bobo's knowledge: he has spoken to literally thousands of people from all walks of life about bigfoots. Through hearing this many stories, patterns start developing. It is through the examination of these patterns that Bobo has found behavioral aspects of bigfoots that give him insight into these creatures' way of life.

When Bobo went to college, the school was chosen almost entirely on the basis of whether or not sasquatches lived nearby. He chose Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA, and when not in class, he could be found in the woods trying to see a bigfoot. In fact many of Bobo's choices over his entire life were centered around trying to see a bigfoot. He took logging jobs on Indian crews to learn from the Native Americans, and to try to see a bigfoot. He took road building jobs in the wilds of Northern California to try to see a bigfoot. He took commercial fishing jobs on the North Coast to try to see a bigfoot. He would spend his off days in the woods to try to see a bigfoot. He is as dedicated as they come.

His efforts have paid off. Bobo saw his first bigfoot in 2001 while on an investigation with veteran bigfoot researcher John Freitas. This same bigfoot had been seen by several locals over the years in the same areas, and has been referred to as “the Big Guy” by local Native Americans. Bobo has glimpsed bigfoots on a few other occasions, but it was this first visual sighting that moved him the most.

Today, Bobo makes a living as a commercial fisherman out of Eureka, CA. He continues to take odd jobs in unrelated fields, most of which are centered around trying to see a bigfoot. His close relationship with the community in which he lives helps him keep his “ear to the ground,” and he collects dozens of local bigfoot sighting reports each year.




  1. great show tonight. when is season 2 going to start?

  2. if you need a laugh before the work week. Watch finding bigfoot. LOL

  3. I swear the "squatch comp" story to be true. If I am lying I am dying.

  4. so what's his real name? jim or james?

  5. im tired of these bogus shows and their weak attempts at really finding "something"!! On the show they talk like there is no quetion that bigfoot is absolutely real, but no evidence EVER!!With all the camera phones and small excellent video cameras someone should have some evidence by now. Most of the videos here are pitiful fakes!

  6. what about the 1971 sighting in Arkansas I was only 17 at the time tuned in to Bleeker Street, a radio show came on about 9 or 10 p.m. was sighting and tracking a Bigfoot that night . was it a true sighting? I'dlike to know. C.J. 225-315-4016

  7. OMG ! They actually have undeniable proof that Bigfoot is real ! I just saw the first show of season 2 and they really found a Bigfoot......NO wait. It's only BoBo. My bad. Never mind.

  8. bobo is my favorite person out of any tv show iv ever watched . i would do anything to go on a bigfoot adventure with him

  9. Dear Mr.Bobo
    My name is Mackenzie and my family and me are huge fans of you and your crew on finding bigfoot.
    My father also loves your show he watchers your show every time it comes on. we have every episode recorded.
    We , well i am actually doing a research paper at school for my english class wiered right (bigfoot and english doesn't actually go together ) anyway and i would absulutly love it if you would send me some stuff on bigfoot or come to my school to help kids at my school learn about a fasinating creature.
    Most kids at my school only care about socializing and stuff. These days there are alot of deliquintes and stuff and would really like if would come and teach them that there is more to life then bad things . You could persuade them to actually brighten up and actually learn something . I know that they well, me would apretiate it very much . My teacher Mrs.riester would really apriciate it too . You could actually bring the school together and maybe go squatching and try to look for the fasinating sasquatch. :D
    Have a nice day sincerley mackenzie
    P.S. i would really like it if u would email me back at

  15. I have watched the bigfoot series for a long time now and have hardly seen any on NW Oregon. I am from A town by Portland 30 miles NW of Portland called Scappoose Or. I use to hunt that area a lot in my younger days. I would always see bigfoot sign all around in the area during dear season. Always thought then that someone was playing tricks or ???. My father told me to keep it quiet about the tracks. I now know what they actually were. I would like to see BOBO go to the hills around Scappoose Or. A place called Pisca Home, and check around there. My e-mail:
