Plesiosaurus drawing

"In 1980 I saw what I would describe as a Plesiosaurus type of creature in northern Ontario at a place called Deep lake. This lake is remote, deep, full of food and is surrounded by muskeg with strange hole of open water. So, in the mid summer of 1980 another person and I decided to walk up the road from his place into the lake (the lake is close to Nellie Lake). We walked to this lake, which is not very large from on top but is cover by muskeg that is floating on the lake, the water was like glass, and it was clear skies. the person I was with was using spoons to catch pike and perch so, he decided to walk about a quarter way around the lake and fish. I had a float and worm on when I look over and see that the person I'm with has caught a small pike and it is jumping out of the water about 20 feet way from him when I see from the middle of the lake a wedged shaped, dark coloured "head" come out of the water at about a 30% angle. Now this thing barely made a ripple and was about 4 to 5 feet out of the water. I yelled to the person I was with but, he was still pulling in his fish and not really listening, I watch for about 5 seconds more and the creature went back into the water again barely making a ripple. I pack up my stuff and we headed home after I told him about it and that I was scared. I never went back to that lake."
