Why do people feel the need to stiff arm a fish that would be more impressive without? I will never understand that...

Nice fish either way, but I have a pet-peeve about stiff arm pics...

That's an awesome fish. I don't know the fella but I recognize his name. I think he puts a lot of time out on those eastern plains lakes! Congrats to him, Next time let the fish give itself come credit. That's a big fish!

Nice fish, even with the stiff arm I would have thought it weighed more.

What a great catch, I hope one day when I catch a wiper it's like that! I bet the fight was phenomenal :)

No doubt I'm jealous!! But you don't lock your elbows holding a fish by accident.

That is a beauty of a Wiper for sure, SGM I do agree that the weight of that fish is on the slim side, the state record is: Wiper 26 lbs. 15oz. 37.5" length Pueblo Reservoir Kevin Treanor 2004.... at 33 inches that thing should have weighed around 20-23 pounds

The biggest one I have caught this year was 27 inches and was around 13 pounds on the boga grip....

On the stiff arm... Are you concerned that their fish looks bigger than yours? Do you lose your ability to judge the size of the fish within a few millimeters accuracy? lol I actually prefer photos that feature the stiff arm... I came to see the fish, not the angler.

Do you really like girls that wear extra padded bras too?? The disappointment when you see reality as opposed to exaggeration lights your fire? Hahaha

love it Ajax. On that note, I would prefer them pressed against my face not held far away hahaha

Same size either way

That's funny Ajax. You sound like a man that has experienced disappointment in his life. Helluva fish though.

That fish is not even close to the state record. Just another slim Jackson wiper. They start getting a trucker gut when they reach that size to get the weight. I agree no need for a stiff arm on a nice fish like that.

This is my brother's! 30 inches, 18.5 lbs. Picture doesn't do it justice.

Dear lord, the banks at Jackson will be lined this weekend......

Nice fish though, all of them. I have yet to get a Colorado wiper anywhere NEAR those. Mine have all been dinks. (Thanks for the fishing lessons Kev-O)

Wowzah wiper!

I'd say that's a Jackson wiper as well, caught on the dam at marker 50. lol

Most times I'd say the stiff arm happens subconsciously and people don't do it to make their fish look bigger. To each their own I suppose. Hold the fish how you want, as long as it is not detrimental to the fish. Lots of fish that size out east, and along the front range.

Goosehunter82 yeah, it is! It's definitely in Colorado!
