While night fishing on the lake May 14, 2006 at around 2:00 am, I noticed something large and dark slowly appear in the water approximately 40 yards away. It was very slowly moving through the water. I asked my friend if he could determine what it was. The visible portion was approximately 8 – 12 feet in length. After shining a Surefire flashlight at it, it submerged. There were no noticeable features such as a head or humps.
