Excerpt 126 from The Lake Demon by Ken David Stewart


Chapter One Hundred Twenty-Six:
Jack Kimberley was in a hurry to get his crew back on Lake Okanagan. He had hired Cam McDougall to replace the late Mike O’Grady as the crew’s audio-visual technician. Jack had the whole crew assemble on the main deck of his boat as he was ready to start giving out instructions.
“Thank you all for agreeing to join the second phase of our project. The pictures and video footage that Mike O’Grady took were awesome. We all owe a great debt to Mike for all that he contributed to our project. He will be sorely missed, but sometimes people have to take great risks to achieve great goals.
But our mission is not over. I have been made aware that some people are not going to take Mike’s photos and video’s seriously. They will figure out that one of the subjects of our film is a man-made replica of Ogopogo. They will probably be astounded at how real the smaller Ogopogo looks, but the average viewer may still suspect a hoax. This has all been pointed out to me by our new audio-video technician, Cam McDougall. Cam will be assuming Mike O’Grady’s duties on phase two of our search for Ogopogo. I will now ask Cam to say a few words to you.”
“Jack is right,” said Cam. “The previously taken photos and videos are not likely to be taken seriously. We must provide a higher level of proof of the existence of Ogopogo.”
“How are we going to do that?” Brian Kelley, the crew’s paramedic asked .
“We were able to film the junior version of Ogopogo. Now we need to capture one of them alive. I say ‘one of them’ as it is very possible that we are looking at a whole family of Ogopogos and that there could easily be more of the smaller variety in Lake Okanagan,” Jack answered.
“I think that we can all agree that it will be much easier to capture a junior size Ogopogo. I have brought along the largest and heaviest fishing net that is available. The plan will be to attract a small Ogopogo to come close enough to my boat so that we can capture it in the net.”
“What if we attract an adult size Ogopogo instead?” Brian asked.
“If a large creature comes near our boat and attempts to attack, we will probably have to kill it. Don’t worry, I have lots of artillery aboard,” Jack repliedsofa-749629__180 1
