    Jim, it looks pretty beefy. I was curious if TWRA certified the weight. I have not caught anything in the 20lb range; so, it is hard for me to judge. Have seen a few in the 10-15lb and they seemed huge in person.

    I would hate to harvest this fish. You can get a nice mount made with a picture that looks better than the skin and foam mounts.

    That's a massive girth on that fish!

    Oh my Goodness, I have to get down there and get in the river as soon as possible.
    To Fish or not to Fish? That's a stupid question.

    I certanly have never landed one over 15lbs. However, I’ve held quite a few when we were shocking the Clinch a bunch and that fish is an easy 15 lbs and 30” long, but not bigger than 18 lbs. heck of a fish, just not as big as claimed imo
