Looking to get a replica done of this fish . But didn't girth it. Just wondering what a good guess would be. This is my 7th over 50. It was 52 1/4 but this fish dwarfed all my other 50's. It's amazing what the build of a fish does. Length isn't everything!!

Girth rules! When I was a kid there was a mount of a 51" found dead but it was 50 pounds! Coolest mount ever.
Good job on a mean looking fish!

Very nice fish!  My guess would be 24" girth.

Short thick stubby head, thick the whole length of the fish and that chunk of meat between the rear fins and the tail. 40 pounds all day. Similar to my dad's fish and if your wondering girth my dad's was 24 1/2.

Great catch looks like a fighter.
