Default Holding a fish 3 feet in front of you for a photo...

Now that every single person in the world knows that ploy, does anyone think it might be time to just hold your fish up without trying to play camera tricks?

Friday, semi-rhetorical question of the day.

The time has long since passed.

It is kinda like people pumping themselves up by posting their job description or number of boats they own (or have owned) at the bottom of their posts.

My God man, that is some outrageous elephantitis in your hands.

If it has lasted longer than four hours I suggest that you consult with a physician. Or, a lawyer.

Practice, practice.

No hand jutting out awkwardly to betray the fish's actual size. It helps if you start with quality fish to begin with too

I for one will never cuddle a fish in my bosom for a picture, always going to have my elbows as straight as possible without looking like too much of a googan.

You are correct in a way. I post my previous boats so that other members that may be interested in a specific year model can ask my opinion from my experience with that particular boat. I get lots of PM's about my old Whaler.

I agree however that the job description is a little much.

Who doesn't want to make a 20 inch trout look like it's 8lbs by holding it way out and hiding your fingers? I have a number of friends that do that shit it's over compensating to make you look better because your fish is bigger. Those of us that fish on the reg know better, I do think it's amusing though. I am a bigger guy in general so they all look smaller with me in the pic anyway. At the end of the day you just look like a bozo doin it so good for you.

Nah it was a party boat, didn't have time for a picture while the bite was on.

Here's another nice hold-out, better scenery (Ft. Lauderdale bait balls, how romantic).

I really like the head to tail look. That is a 350 lb man in the photo.




I don't think you could hold this beast out 3 feet.

Yeah, that ploy is so last year. Now you aren't cool if you dont hug your large offshore fish and clench your rod in your teeth for inshore fish photos.

I always try to invite someone small in stature on the boat and have them take pictures with the fish. Unfortunately, all of my buddies are 6'3"+ and 230#+.
