How Big Really Was That Big Fish? No matter what you say people will say it was less. Even if you have a photo, they think they can tell your fish wasn’t as big as you claim, because they saw a photo of a fish someone held in front of the camera so close it looked 100 times bigger than it was. I posted a video of a 10 pound lake erie walleye that was over 10 pounds and was 31″ long. I didn’t even weigh it, getting the length was enough for me. It was after spawn so they lose the eggs and body fat and weigh much less. It would have weighed 14# maybe before spawn and less after, all depending on how much body fat they lose. It was a beefy fish that was closer to 11 pounds, but people on youtube kept saying it was less. It didn’t matter what I said, they would say it was less. It’s funny how people make such a big deal out of how big a fish was. If you catch a bass in the 5 pound class, everyone will say it is 4 pounds. I guess it’s just a jealousy thing. That and some people really are liars. It’s usually the same people who tell you you’re fish wasn’t that big, but when they catch one it is much bigger than it actually is. I was catching Bass on lake erie in the Fall one year and the guy I was with caught two 18″ Bass. He started telling me they were over 5 pounds after he released them. Having caught 100’s of 18″ smallmouth in the Fall, I know they are in the 4 pound class. Maybe in the spring they could be full of eggs and weigh 5 pounds. I told him they were 4 pound class and he got so mad he wouldn’t go out in the boat anymore after I caught a 21″ fish that really did weigh 5 pounds. So that video in youtube I decided to keep claiming it weighed more every time some dumass made a nasty comment about how small the 31″ walleye was. It’s up to 31 pounds now. The video states in the beginning that its a 10- pounder, but people get so mad before they even watch it that they miss that part. I have to remove most of the comments because of name calling. So I just made this cartoon:
