2015 Champ Sightings

August 1st, 2015

  Spotted something large in the water while waiting for the draw bridge to close coming off from North Hero. It was at 7:30pm 8/01/15. My fiancĂ© was taking photos of the lake with her ipad when something large came up. She noticed a smooth large hump appear from the water and then slowly submerge. She took four photos of what looks like a large line in calm water that appears and gets smaller. I saw her reaction and missed it as I turned to see what she was reacting to.

On July 4 we were moored in a sailboat with some friends watching the fireworks at the Plattsburgh Boat Basin. Both of us saw a long thin very dark "something" move through the water just in front of our boat. It was moving very quickly and was visible just out of the surface of the water. It disappeared in a few seconds as it was very dark and moving very quickly. Since it was dark it was hard to determine its exact size.

 It definitely was moving faster than any regular fish I think I have ever seen. WE had no knowledge of the Champ legend and were surprised to find all this information about it. ~  Bonita Weisman & Mark Sherry
