A Loch Ness type of monster was spotted by several tourists and residents in the waters of Long Lake in the Adirondacks. 

That's what we saw on Facebook, and we clicked right away hoping to put an end to the thought of the legendary monster. It turns out it's was nothing more that a hoax :(.

Legend has everything living in those waters from abnormally huge Northern Pike and yes the Loch Ness monster. Looks like the tails will live on.
