Problem solved, guaranteed to make fish look big, here is your new fishing buddy. PM him with trip details.

I hate it when two what to hold a good fish up for pictures, damn it always makes the fish look small. I always tell them one at a time and hold the fish as far away from your body as you can because it always makes your fish look bigger. LOL

If the arms are extended, that should be the giveaway that the fish is on the small size. A big fish will be too heavy to hold at arms length. Read, moment arm.

Do people that hold small fish at arms length also stuff socks into their underwear to make it look larger as well? Is this a small penis issue that is being compensated for?

What in the hell is with those fisherfolks that elevate themselves by standing on a platform but then lower themseves by crouching down?

Either stand up tall on the platform to see better or stay down in the boat. Hell, stay in the boat and crouch down below the center console. Better still, just lay down on the floor so as not to be seen.

I catch any where from 7-20 of those hook and line every time I go out. Depending on how many people are on the boat. (Limit 5 apiece) Suppose I'd do better if I shot em'. then there would be holes in the meat. Beautiful fish tho man!

Of course not, that's her job! At least that's how it works in this house, I can't fillet to save my life.
