A group of 5 vacationers to Lake Champlain claim they saw the legendary creature while they were doing some bass fishing. One of the witnesses says he was a skeptic, but is not anymore, and is certain that what he saw was no known creature.

Five vacationers from Maryland claim they've seen Champ, the mythical Lake Champlain monster.

Bob Gload and four of his grandchildren said they saw a dark, black, snakelike creature while bass fishing Wednesday afternoon. Gload said there was an "explosion" in the water, and then he saw three humps, two-to-three-feet tall, four-to-five feet apart.

"I was born in Champlain. I never believed in Champ or the Loch Ness monster," Gload told the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh. "I believe now."

Hey nice find! By the way is the picture below of the creature in the water the one that the fisherman spotted while out at sea? If so that's amazing! Is the Loch Ness monster related to that one you think?

There are many reports that Champ, the Lake Champlain monster is a "plesiosaur like" creature. I added the pictures as visual aids!

By the way, welcome to Above Top Secret!

Hey thanks man! Oh boy I made some major spell errors
Oh well next time I will not.. anyways do you think that if the Loch Ness monster existed that maybe the reason why it can't be spotted by many people that perhaps it's afraid of humans?

That could well be. After all, if it did or does exist, we really have no measure of how intelligent it would be. Dont worry about the spelling, thats why there is an edit button on your post.

I know the idea of lake monsters has been pretty well debunked, but the theory that they are deep ocean dwellers that migrate via underground streams to these deep lakes to breed or raise young is nonetheless intriguing. However, it is hard to get around the fact that there are no carcasses of these things washing up on the beaches.

Still though, the eye witness accounts are exciting.

Very interesting indeed
Maybe just maybe beneath the oceans there are caves that are filled with water..but eventually as you go higher into that water cave it soon gets dry as you go entire subterranean cave with this sea dinosaur.. possible you never know!

It was my understanding that scientists had ruled out the big plesiosaur. The "experets" were now almost convinced it looks like a snake with legs. I saw a special on discover and they had a model that would be a lot more convincing. As well as some stillframes/ movies that looked to be decent evidance of that type of animal.

In 1985, I met a man in Vergennes, VT that had a video that he took with a Sony Betamax camera of a very large creature splashing water in Lake Champlain.

I knew the guy, and I do not believe the video was faked. I watched it at his house. It showed a black snake or eel- looking thing rolling out of the surface of the water. It was thrashing water up in the air, the action was quite violent looking.

I have seen him on TV over the years since on Natgeo and other channels talking about Champ. He investigates and studies reports of Champ now.

Hmm, the link seems to be broken?

only reason Im asking is because I live in Vermont and would like to go champ spotting, it would be nice to know where specifically on the lake the sighting occured-

It's an 8 year old NY Newsday link which, in all probability was removed from their database long ago. I even input the title into their search and came up empty.

Has that not been proven to be a picture of a swimming elephant?

I Think Champ and Nessie are the same species. My opinion. Some sort of Dinosaur?
