    I just got a email off a friend who is having 6 months fishing in New Zealand. He caught these at the weekend 66.8kg and 68.7kg bass. Thought he was taking the piss when I first saw them.

    Im not doubting the authenticity of the weight, but hes holding the fish with his arms outstretched towards the camera, an old trick to make a fish look bigger.
    ​Try holding a 42lb weight with your arms held straight out infront of you

    I think his left arm is resting on his knee. I am a keen carper and have held a fair few fish this size and thats what I do.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.
