Ditto, not saying it isn't but sure don't look it.


I’d be a little jealous too if some guy on vacay from Nebraska pulled that out of my home lake.....

Great fish, congrats!!!!

Not sure about the jealousy part, I’ve caught my fair share of bigguns out of here. I actually think it’s a good thing, may put my house on the market for sale, be a good time to do it!


Yea it would for sure! Water is up and the big ones are biting!
I was just poking a little fun at y’all with the jealous comment. I grew up out in Sterling City and spent my summers in Ballinger at my grandparents and spent lots of time on Ivie. Loved fishing there and I am jealous. I’d love to catch a 16# fish out of there!!


It's only a good cast if you catch a fish...

Looks like a 9-11 pounder to me. Actually, I have no idea, I just needed to have something to say.

Ive learned a long time ago it is impossible to determine weight from a picture.

Sometimes a picture makes a fish look way bigger, sometimes pictures do the fish no justice.

Ive also learned that to avoid being looked at as a prick, i will always give the fishermen the benefit of doubt. If they want to lie about the size of their fish, thats on them, im not gonna lose sleep over it.

People that argue weight just come across as being jealous.

As big as that fish looks from the pic on the ramp, I wouldn't be surprised at all if she doesn't weigh 16+.

Same way I feel.


Congrats to the angler that caught it and I enjoy seeing fish pictures so it was nice to see them shared on here.

I agree, as I said earlier that particular pic looks better than the first pics.

Yep it is hard to judge the size of most fish, because the anglers arms grow about 5 feet when they take a picture. The Big-Uns just are big.. I bet he had to throw his underwear away when he finally settled down... Imagine loosing a fish like that. That would be a hell of a "fishing story"...

Oh snap! Wish photobucket was still going. I could post a pic of the lake grapevine record. Just over 12lbs when caught. She was like a pet dog to me and was native. She grew close to 20lbs before she died. (Not in my care) miss her just like my labs.

Haven’t seen anything posted about the fish being in Athens on the Sharelunker site.
Also...where’s all the snow and ice in the pic? If it was caught in the last few days, I question the pics.
Either way it’s a nice fish for sure.

Just got word from Athens.

They are making sure the fish is healthy & stable before they pull her out to weigh & measure her. Sounds like she is a legit giant but don't have the official weight yet. thumb
