    well the one here in may was 50 maby take a pound or 2, the second is 42 but if you look at both there the exact same size,i personoly dont think the 50 looks like a 50 it looks 40, but my scale said 50, i posted this before but heres the pics so you can see,i dont think they look as big as they weghedbut who knows,the one in the prison outfit was the 50

    One in the prison outfit looks about 6" or 8" longer than the other one.

    the closer to the camera the bigger the fish looks, and you can see more detail in the picture.

    Have the person who is taking your pictures get much closer, you have alot of wasted space in those pics, so have the photographer move colser to ya, take several pics also.

    Sure wish that our good river had lots of the fish that you boys catch...

    We are lucky to get 2-30's on the Colorado river between California and Arizona....

    The 50 looks a little bulkier, but you can't really tell. They are both nice fish so it doesn't really matter.:big_smile:

    could be the camera angle but the one in the prison suit you can tell it has a lil bigger gut and you're strugglin a lil more to hold it up, well at least your face looks that way:smile2:

    Why do you need the exact weight. Can't you be happy with just catching big fish
