Re: FINALLY!! A NEW PB! (PIC)

Recommended Posts

Nice fish. Really hard to tell the weight because you are holding so far from your body.

Holy crap man! I wasn't expecting to see a pig like that. It is really tough to tell from the picture, but I'd say that's 9 or 10 pounds if not more. She has the classic bug eyes of a really big fish. She is massive, congratulations  ;D

Also, don't be ashamed of holding it so close to the camera. As Fish Chris says, holding it close to the camera gives us spectators a better idea of how big the fish actually is. When you don't hold it close, it invariably looks smaller than its true size.

Congrats my man. Beautiful fish. HAWG. Just broke my PB a couple of days ago as well. Awesome feeling huh.  Hard to guess the weight from that angle.  Definitely over 7 1/2lbs though for sure.

I don't want to sound like an donkey-crevice, but is that photoshopped? You index finger in the fish's mouth looks "fishy"...

If not .. I would guess 7 lbs.

I agree, look how his index finger looks, there's a liitle half circle shape void there.  Nice try, but I think Photoshop has been applied here.  Good attempt but should have worked on that finger a little bit more if you wanted to get away with it.

I know a thing or two about photoshop myself.  I used to work for the Nat. Enquirer.

Hmm, when you look closely it does look a little fishy. Another strange thing is that he's not straining at all with a 9+ pound fish, no elbow bend, and not a very strong grip for such a large fish. If that's photoshopped, that's freakin' lame. What say you?

i assume the fish is a good fish. wot i cant get past is judging by the trees/grass the time of the year is mid May.

i could be wrong.

Good thing I saved this.  Looks like we were right, IT WAS A FAKE.  He took it down very quickly.  It is a bit smaller but now every one can see.

Probably...though I originally made it to email my buddy.  :D

On a related note, when I first joined here I made an avatar with a picture of me holding a bass that was obviously photoshopped. It appeared to be about 40 pounds!! I really thought I was being funny and creative, but a couple of people took exception to it, and I deleted it to avoid trouble.

I learned a valuable lesson, you can photoshop to hide your background, or make a picture funny...but you better think twice before you change the size of your bass.

That's a good point.  I can see where it could be started as a joke, but on the other side, its a little insulting and diminishing to those that pursue, catch, and post the genuine article.  It devalues the information that the trophy hunters are willing to share.

What's funnier is doing it the old fashioned way, with a dink  ;D

Also, being a photographer, I like to be creative with my pictures, using tools like depth of field and perspective to add interest to the fish, and not to simply document the catch.

Like this:

As opposed to the "straight shot":

That avatar may be what I'm remembering.  It was obviously a joke, because there are no bass of that length on the planet.
