    how big do you think this channel is? the pic isnt to good since it was a camera phone pic and the fish is somewhat curved how im holding it. when i held it up to my arm it was about to the middle of my bicep. didnt have the scales and this was my first nice sized channel(ive cought a 17 pound since then)

    Looks like somewhere in the 2-3 pound range. Good eating size for sure.
