    Doing your body comparison to the size of fish, I'm guessing the weight to be around 25-30 lbs. In my book, that's one heck of a nice fish regardless of the weight!! Great job!!

    That fish weighs just what you weighed him at. It doesn't matter what kind of scale you used. A pound is a pound. If you weighed him at 40 then he weighes 40. Nice fish. Human scales are almost never off by more than one pound per 100 pounds.

    If you are 6feet tall? Then that fish is 40+. So maybe you're going to tell us you're 6'8":smile2:
