Great fish I bet it looked mighty impressive in the water. Looks a bit sorry for itself now though does'nt it.
Now it's been caught weighed and strung up,what on earth do you do with it now?,you sure as can't let it swim away now can you!.
Just seems to me a waste of a damn fine speciman for the sake of a trophy photo

That pic has REALLY p@ssed me off, a magnificent fish dead on the quayside, not as if it was going to smash a record. 99% of us brits are responsable anglers tyurke, some American sports fisherman are clearly out of a different mould and easily impressed, I suggest you save those pics for your american forums. I for one am NOT impressed :mad:

That fish would have been a grander in a few years

What a very sad sight. A magnificent creature slaughtered for man's foolish pride.
Don't like to see stuff like this on the forum.
