Yes, he may not be holding it right, but he released it, and that is a battle won in itself. That is an awesome catch, that is for sure.

They say throw a 10" for a 50", well another giant caught Pike fishing (Art Barefoot) or a small lure (Ken O'brian)

Girth rules for heavy fish, if i'm not mistaken a 60" fiah with a 25" girth wood weight only(?) 45 pounds.The fish in the photo is way cool believe me but its past its prime. But at the same time how many people can say that they got a 60"?

60" Just another drop dead on the nutz perfectly rounded off even number. I'm not saying it isn't 60" but people these days seem to round the measurement to the nearest inch. usually towards the the larger side.

Still an impressive fish, even at 59"

actually, the guy who caught it is only 4 feet tall. :+

and the all-time biggest "Duh!" statement I've ever read:
"The pair have been fishing together on Lake Nipissing for 35 years and have never caught a fish this big before."

My question is what does a bass or walleye guy use to measure a 60 inch fish.

He definitely showed he couldn't handle the fish how can he figure how to measure it correctly?

I'm sure it's a giant fish but the vertical hold makes it way to hard to estimate and it stretches fish. A nice horizontal hold not only shows the actual lenght but the girth as well.

He may of released it but will it survive, doesn't look too promising.

Keep releasing them all

Certainly a nice one. Looks a little thin though.
Maybe it lived, and maybe it didn't. But at least he gave it a chance.

He didn't do any worse than some so called C&R Musky fisherman who take to laying fish in the bottom of their boats, on carpets, seats, etc.

Is that a spinning rig in the photo?? I thought they didn't catch big fish??

Big water for crappies.

Wow,

Huge fish. Not a great shot of the fish, or holding technique. But fish of a life time to this bass/ pike fisherman.

Check it out.
