At least that's what folks have been saying since 1889 when it was viewed from the lake steamer U.S. Grant, skippered by Capt. James C. Kerr. At first the whale-like object was thought be an approaching boat. A rifle-toting passenger fired at it and apparently missed, but it scared the fish - or whatever it was - away.
Sporadic appearances have been viewed by scores of people since then. Documented sightings were reported in the early 1900s, 1912, 1919, 1922-23, 1934, 1937, 1939, and in every decade since.
