I don't doubt they get that big, but that picture is so photoshopped its ridiculous. That fish looks like it weighs 170 pounds. And the guy wouldn't be holding it with 1 hand like that. Stupid.

Baker you are a dipsh-t! Here is the website to the Mississippi Department of Marine resources that has a list of all the current MS state records. So you sir can SUCK IT!!!! By the way it is only 70 pounds. I'm sorry if you cant lift that much! Copy and paste this into your browser. dmr.ms.gov/images/fisheries/finfish/conventional.pdf

William B.,just because you can not hold a 170 pound fish does not mean it cant be done,I do curls with 120 pounds when I work out and I could hold 170 in that position with minimal effort,just because you could not does not mean it cant be done,it just means maybe you need to workout with more than that keyboard......

I have not been a member too long on this site, but it sure seems that there is a lot of people that do nothing but say everything is photo-shopped. Some of the people give reasons which make a lot of sense like shadowing or distance, but some don't know there ass from a hole in the ground about what they are talking about and appear to just be jealous. This picture is real Jess. Why don't you let me use that little bass for bait so I can catch a big fish.

No it would have cost too much. It was donated to the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research
Lab in Ocean Springs Mississippi. They wanted to study it. They estimated it to be 40 years old. Before they finished all their research hurricane Katrina wiped out their facility. I just got my Certificate from the state.

I have to say that this picture IS NOT photoshopped because the mouth of the fish is very proportionate to the size of the fish. IF it were photoshopped, the mouth would be much smaller. We catch alot of drums around my parts and that's is definitely legitimate.

Eddie, John and Adam, every one of you can pound salt. Jess is right, i don't doubt the record just the picture. It's only my opinion anyway i didn't mean to make you cry. If you can't take the critizism, don't post stupid pictures. I'm not jealous of a fake picture, retards, i just don't like liars. I didn't give a reason for saying it was photoshopped because i thought it was pretty obvious but i guess that means i'm just smarter than you are. Shadowing and distance are both an issue as well as lighting. The lighting is totally different from the rest of the picture and the whole fish looks like it was just magnified and shopped back into that picture. If you don't want people to doubt your pictures, have someone with at least half a brain operating the camera. DUMBASS.

Oh yeah i almost forgot, John L, i said the fish LOOKS like it weighs 170lbs, its almost as big as the guy holding it. Idiot.

the only thing that makes it look fake is the way It is being held.....

Once again it is only a 70 pound fish. I have my hand crammed up into his gill. What is so hard about that?
