Damn, you guys always knocking a legal catch are really getting old, You sure know how to ruin a fish report from people. Just cause you have a opinion you dont have to always express it. Sometimes the strongest statement is the statement not said.
I think it's a wee bit ironic that a self impressed talking head first bags a guy for taking a fish he apparently doesn't know much about, but even worse brags and beats his chest over taking some 400lb Bluefins off North Carolina that are clearly suffering some existance issues of their own. Way to go yourself, Tarzan.
Here i go again, posting about some else's catch...since it was already on AC, I figure it's ok....and no comments from you Chris
If you look at the light reflection on the guys face and the light reflection on the gill...this would go against the cut and paste theory....
The light is coming from the right direction, plus look at the shadows in the background.....he would have to be standing somewhat behind the fish for this effect.....It appears real to me. If it is fake...CLASSIC....got a few hairs raised.
E: Also...it looks like the guys shoulder is casting a shadow on the fish
Edit: I went back to the original post and checked out a link about a 400 pounder that some diver speared at 435 feet....it is smaller then this one....the more i look at it, the more it does appear fake..cut, enlarge, and paste. That 400 pounder was 2 feet smaller 1/4 less in girth.
O.K. It seems that there is a lot of confusion between warsaw/goliath/jewfish. Consensus is that it was a legal catch. I'll go along with that. Thanks for the information & sorry if I stirred things up. That was not my intention.
Hey, if this is the BS board, why do I need to apologize?
