Hey Bob,

I can guess their weights fairly closely and I don't stick my arms out when holding a fish for photos, nor do I request my angler to. Wide angle lens make fish look smaller with noted exceptions. Personally, I couldn't give a rat's ass if people don't believe what I say about the weight of the fish I've caught. I weigh the larger ones so I know what it weighs.

This one in the first photo weighed 19 pounds but it sure didn't look like it taken with a wide angle lens and held the way I was holding it. Now take a look at the second photo of the same fish with Captain Steve Santucci holding it, taken with the lens at about 50 mm and straight on. Huge difference.
