An amateur Nessie Hunter believes that he picked up evidence of the creature during a recent boat trip.
According to a recent report in the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register dated August 26th, Benjamin Scanlon and his family had been on holiday in Scotland and had taken a boat trip on Loch Ness aboard the 'Nessie Hunter' vessel when its sonar picked up something unexpected under the water.

According to the readings, the unidentified creature was approximately 13ft in length.

"Benjamin Scanlon was on holiday with his family and took a trip on the 'Nessie Hunter' of Loch Ness Cruises," a report on the official register's website reads.
"He spotted something on the sonar on the boat and caught the image."

"Captain Mike of the boat estimated it to be 3-4 meters in length, at a depth of about 20 meters, while the boat was in water about 40 meters deep."

The sighting follows on from that of another visitor to the area who witnessed a large creature measuring around 12ft in length which rose up out of the water north of Urquhart Castle on July 30th.

According to the report, two other families also saw the same thing from the lochside.

I dunno about it, but I remember(2016) when they found a lost 30ft (9m) big model of the Loch Ness Monster built in 1969. For a Sherlock Holmes movie. It has been found almost 50 years after it sank in the loch. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/apr/13/loch-ness-monster-remains-discovered-by-robot

13" Nessie? Only if it is a juvenile.

Probably a large eel, or a shoal of fish. The eel thing has been a compelling Nessie explanation, too. Lots of eel DNA is in the loch, and exceptionally large specimens are not unknown.

There are many locks to negotiate to get to Loch Ness, over 20 locks and swing bridges all along the canal, all of which are operated for you by Scottish Canals' staff. It would be difficult for anything of any size to negotiate these with ought being spotted.

I will stick to my theory that this a large Wels Catfish. Coming from the time when the Victorians threw them into lakes to provide sport fishing for the upper classes.

Could be the case. Sounds like they are declining overall though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wels_catfish
