    My guess was 14-16lbs. Looking at the picture it looks like it goes from shoulder to fingertip which I figure makes that fish between 25-30 inches long. Kinda thin..... Nice fish!

    Well now, I see who the nice people are. We'll never really know for sure, since it is just an old photo and none of us are forensics experts.... is there?

    What harm does it do to make a person feel good?

    Jack, Jack, I'm so disappointed :roll_eyes:

    Well Shawn, it could scar the fellow for life. If I may quote Barny Fife " you give a guy thirty five he'll take forty,you give a guy forty he'll take forty five..."
    No good comes from teaching a young fisherman to exaggerate. There is enough of that gene inherent in the DNA of every one that picks up a fishing pole. And what about the complex he will develop over time about whether his scales are accurate. He may go through four or five makes and models trying to find one that he thinks is accurate. lol Oh yeah, it may feel good now, but what about in the future?:wink::smile2::smile2::smile2:

    What's a man without a few scars to shape our character? We MUST teach young fisherman to elasticize the truth. It is not a lie, but an exageration, helping them develop their creative side.

    Beside, fishermen have done it since time began, and also.....

    Can you prove, beyond all reasonable doubt that that particular fish did not weigh 14 lbs?

    :wink::wink::wink:
