The Indigenous native name for the creature is Mishipashoo. Legends say that a water spirit inhabits
One of the stories says that over a hundred years ago, a man named Andrew was at the lake with his family and he and his siblings were jumping from rock to rock along the sides of the lake. Suddenly, Andrew saw what looked like a huge fish. There were also some reports that people who saw this creature described it as a serpent. In 1977, a man by the name of Mont Woods, a county constable for Lennox and Addington working for the Ministry of Natural Resources, saw something like a large eel or sturgeon and later when pulling up nets one had a hole in it about 4 feet wide . The theory is that it is a large sturgeon at least 14 feet long, which is a monster in terms of size but would it have survived for over 100 years and if not what else is in the lake?
