    LOL, Michael!

    I think it's fake, too. If you look at the fish's belly where his hand is, there's no indentation from the body weight. He's also not straining to hold it.

    I was just reading that story a few minutes ago myself
    Real Fish? Probably. No big deal for an Ogon to grow large.
    Real Pic and stats??? Fat chance. That guy is no more holding that fish at that size in that manner than I am And 30#? Horse Squeeze! Unless the guy is a dwarf a fish that large relative to the size of a man would be a LOT more than a measly 30#... The least the phony could do is come up with story that matched up with the picture
