ABC News has reported that a Scottish sailor claims to have best picture yet of Loch Ness Monster.

The legend of the LOCH NESS MONSTER or “Nessie” (which she has lovingly been dubbed) began in the 6th Century and continues to this day. The beast is undoubtedly the most famous LAKE MONSTER ever reported and almost certainly ranks among the most famous cryptids in history.

Now, a self proclaimed “Nessie Hunter,”  George Edwards — who has spent the last 26-years of his life searching for the elusive creature — claims that he has snapped the best picture yet of “Nessie.”

Edwards, who takes his boat out onto Loch Ness nearly every day, stated that he was turning his ship back to shore after spending the morning searching for an old steam engine on the lake floor, when he saw something else:

“I saw something out of the corner of my eye, and immediately grabbed my camera. I happened to get a good picture of one of them.”

The picture Edwards took shows what he says is the back of one of the Loch Ness monsters:

“In my opinion, it probably looks kind of like a manatee, but not a mammal. When people see three humps, they’re probably just seeing three separate monsters.”

Edwards has a lot of theories about the Loch Ness monster, which he first became fascinated with when he was a 13-year-old and his father would take him fishing at the massive lake. He says he was a skeptic at first, but decades on Loch Ness have turned him into an ardent believer:

“I grew up with the legend, like the boogeyman, or Big Foot in your part of the world, and most people start out thinking it’s a myth. But Loch Ness is so deep and dark and mysterious, when you start hearing more and more stories, you start believing more.”

Edwards has “every bit of electrical equipment available,” to aid in his search. He used to take it all out onto the lake seven days a week, but he says he’s going out a bit less these days. He doesn’t know if he’ll ever see the elusive creature again, but he plans to sail onto the lake as much as possible.

“I’m 60 years old now, I can’t go out every day, but I won’t stop going out onto Loch Ness until they put me in a box six feet under.”
