    Look at the head on that fish. From the snout to the back of the gill flap could be 18"!

    Or it could more realistically be 13" or slightly over...Giant fish however!

    I just measured a 49" hanging on the wall in my living room and from the tip of the lower jaw to the back of the gill plate is exactly 12". To say that fish is only 13", c'mon.

    No doubt a big and beautiful fish. But take into consideration camera angle, closer to head than tail and the famous big fish pose - elbow on knee and fish away from the body - a Hulbert special and I like Mike!!

    Great fish but I want to hear Joe say how big it is and not speculate from a picture

    From all indicators, the fish is between 59-1/2 and 59-3/4, no way 60!

    From Joe: "I would rather keep this a mystery ..."

    I suggested JBO could take advantage of lure sales by talking about the fish, since he obviously caught it on a JBO product. He said the fish was caught on a new color (of what bait, I don't know) and they aren't up to speed yet with production.

    So, that all said, I don't know any more than any of you. Big fish, though.

    Very nice fish but judging size by a picture with the camera lens about 2 to 3 feet from the fish can be very deceiving. Let the tape measure tell the true story. It is funny I just heard a rumor of a 57" caught last week on the big chip, supposedly the fish was kept so that story should be floating around soon if true?
