Sonar picks up 25ft 'creature' in Loch Ness

A boat skipper has captured a sonar image of something large lurking in the depths of the world-famous loch.
24-year-old Mike Bell had been taking a group of tourists out on the water on June 27th when he picked up the anomalous object approximately 115ft beneath the surface.

When he circled around to scan the same spot again, the object had completely disappeared.

"I would like to think this is our creature, Nessie," he said. "It's my first year being the skipper in the boat [and] in five months I've never seen it or had something that big on the sonar."
"An object of that size I would think is way too big for the normal species in the loch. It must have been about five or six minutes we spent trying to pick up this creature again."

This year is turning out to be one of the best for Loch Ness Monster sightings with 8 reported so far.

"My dad is the more experienced skipper who has been doing this for a few years and has said he's never seen it that big before on the sonar," said Bell.

"It's my first sighting of Nessie and I think my dad is a wee bit jealous as he has never seen it."

All of it.  The grass does not grow, nor does the wind blow, because it is logical to do so.  Logic is a man made tool to help us make sense of the universe we live in.  Nature knows nothing of it.  Is a grasshopper logical?  Does its existence make sense?  We strive to claim so, but the words are all ours.  Aside from man, creatures do not do things because they are logical.  They have no need to make sense of their world.  They just are.

Although the reports of ivory billed woodpeckers have not been substantiated there have been cases of finding birds in the foothills of the Himalayas that had not been seen for 50 plus years. https://thehimalayantimes.com/nepal/nepals-extinct-bird-rediscovered-in-chitwan/ http://www.nbcnews.com/id/34152254/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/extinct-species-found-alive-kicking/#.XWa22uhKg_w The problem is that these birds are known and were known to exist. The ivory billed is not known to be extant. Nessie has not been found under the water despite many sonar scans. The current scan is low res... [More]

Here after the Loch Ness DNA Reveal, which means Nessie is probably a massive eel (which makes me scared, imagine a huge eel floating around the loch) I reckon this sonar reading is important because we now know how massive the eel in the loch is - a staggering 25 feet long... Those are my thoughts on this Cheers

There are tales of massive eels. I am wondering where the existence of eels has been altered to be massive eels.

Well, they can grow rather big. I wouldnt be surpised if some of the sightings were a group of eels surfacing the lake.

A different monster has made itself at home in the Loch and eaten Nessie

I'd be willing to spend a year or so inside a submersible if it would get people to stop believing this nonsense.
