George Edwards, a Scottish skipper who spent decades searching for the beast said to inhabit Loch Ness, claims to have finally spotted his elusive quarry and gotten what he calls photographic proof of the monster.
On Nov. 2, 2011, Edwards photographed what appears to be a single hump in the water from the deck of his boat, "Nessie Hunter."

Edwards said that "It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle and it was a dark grey color. It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but it's difficult to tell in water," according to the Daily Mail, which has posted the photo. He watched the object for five to 10 minutes before it slowly sank and did not resurface.

Nessie was proved decades ago to be a giant sturgeon. They can get really enormous as they age.

There was a report and a photo about it in the US sometime....maybe back in the 90's. But I suppose it could have just been that someone spotted a an unusually large sturgeon and decided that was Nessie.
