always gotta be one in the crowd.   He said near the great sacandaga, that not good enough for you?   Want GPS coords? 42.647102, -73.761994

I posted a reply to this, but deleted it. I'm better than this nonsense. Great fish, I meant no disrespect by having an opinion. I do not want GPS coordinates, but thank you for the humor.

To answer some more questions....

Bait was actually small suckers.  We were targeting Pike

We did weigh the 28", but the scale wasn't accurate.   Scale said 6.5 lbs, which seemed low.  Took that same scale home and put a 10lb weight on it, only registered 8ish lbs.  The pics don't give the girth justice, it was unbelievably fat. 

No idea on the suit, thats my cuz holding the fattie, that's me holding the dink.

All in all that's a lifetime fish and to put it back to breed is great, but we all know that someone will get her on the spring and not throw her back. Great fish and thanks for all the info

Cheek meat like poor mans scallops!!! But I like my eyes in the 17"-24" range for good eating .. I caught a bunch in the river this fall all in the 24"-28" range just took nice pics and threw em back. But don't begrudge any man fishing to eat that for sure
