Anybody follow this? They’ve been posting pics of people with their big fish & claimed weights for quite a while. Well, every pic has pretty much turned into a poop storm of people claiming the fish weighs half the weight it’s claimed in the comments section, name calling, & just good ole internet douchebaggery to the point that GL posted a guess the weight on a confirmed fish. There was an over 10 lb discrepancy from the master pic judging public. A 13 lb fish with guesses between 6 & 17 lbs & maybe 10-20% were within one pound one way or the other. lol
It just really annoys me when people look at a pic & call someone a liar when there’s so many variables besides the angle of the pic & how the fish is held that they cite as reasons for doubting the catch. Unless you know the size of the people & things in the picture, it’s hard to really judge the size of anything in a pic. How many times have you heard someone say something is bigger/smaller than what it looked like in the picture? ALL THE FREAKING TIME! I know most fisherman embellish their fishing, but the just blatant calling people liars just drives me up the wall from people that only see a pic of the person holding the fish. /End Rant.
