BURLINGTON, Vt.- A cell-phone video of a mysterious object in Lake Champlain has some wondering if it's "Champ," a legendary Loch Ness-style monster said to roam the lake's depths.

The video, taken by Eric Olsen, of Burlington, shows an object moving through the water in a small cove, apparently swimming and raising its head above the surface several times.

Don’t be so sure there is nothing there! (eerie music)

BUT — there really IS something there. I never saw a head or body, but there was something that was leaving a wake -— against a windy current. It was off the coast of a northern section of the lake between North Hero and Alburg,in about 20 to 30 feet of water. There was a southern fetch with small choppy waves and something was just under the surface causing a wake going in the opposite direction of the fetch. I was at a camp, vacationing, and others saw it too. One couple took their outboard near the wake, but as they approached, the wake stopped. But we had seen it for quite a few minutes as it traveled south.

I was an avid fisher in that lake and caught just about everything there, and had heard about large sturgeon being there, but never saw one. Was that it?

Has to be a reasonable explanation.

Looks like an inanimate object with a wake that belies the fact that it is a log some prankster is pulling toward shore.

It’s definitely being towed to shore. The picture you posted looks like a squirrel.

I knew with a screen name like Exit148 you had to be from NJ. I was exit 7 off the turnpike.

Except for Jerseyites, I figured it would be an anonymous type of name. One of the first responses — the day I registered — was from a nation-wide trucker who knew exactly where I was from!

(I’m originally from MA, but don’t tell anyone)

Hi, Exit! Hope to see you in DC in Sept.

My take on whatever that is in the lake? It's the Loch Ness monster, of course. He's vacationing there right now........

I once actually stood on the banks of Loch Ness, and with the rest of the idiot tourists, was calling "Nessie, Nessie, Nessie!" LOL! He never answered us though.
