Father and son film 'Ogopogo' in Canadian lake

What did the pair spot in the lake ? Image Credit: YouTube / Blake Neudorf
Recently released footage shows what looks like a large creature swimming in Okanagan Lake, British Columbia.
The video, which was originally recorded on July 10th, 2018, was uploaded onto YouTube this week by Blake Neudorf who had been fishing with his father in Okanagan Lake - a body of water famous for its Ogopogo lake monster - at the time of the sighting.

"The thing looks like it is close in the video but it was a few hundred yards off shore and it was huge, I would say at least 60 feet long you could visually see it rolling in the water," he wrote.

"During this video there was a small group of people videoing off-shore as well."
"Toward the end it goes into a small bay so me and my dad hopped in the truck and drove toward the area it was headed but when we got to the bay it was nowhere to be seen."

Ogopogo is typically described as a large serpent-like creature that has been sighted at the lake as far back as the 19th Century, although there remains no conclusive evidence of its existence.

Could this be what Blake and his dad filmed that day or is there a more conventional explanation ?

Grainy footage from a billion feet away (sigh)

I think we are all agreed. It's an Ogopogolog.

I took a pic of a log in the Willamette River today. Looks like a crocodile to me. Just goes to show most of the time these things are logs.

It's a wave. We have them around the lake by me.

It does not make waves while moving. It is a wave.

Seems the consensus here is "log". However, it seems these people filming are local, which probably means they've seen lots of logs in the lake and know the difference. That said, I'm sure it's something unspectacular such as a Plesiosaurus  Wait, is that the same thing as a Obobingo or whatever?

Actually, most of us on here who live near or on this lake say wave.  You see it when two boats go opposite directions, it causes a rolling on the surface, even when you don't see the rest of the wakes

Makes sense to me! However, you'd think (not so much in a lake) in the vastness of the oceans that cover most of the earth, there could be something really big that is still undiscovered. Such as something that lives really deep and seldom approaches the surface. Then again, maybe not. Be cool if there were some Megalodons swimming around. Of course, I don't currently spend time out on the water, so I suppose they might not be that welcome by some who do.

Yes it is probably a log but it's still pretty cool.
