I would be carefull at putting it at 9 to 10 killos, thats between 20 and 22 pounds, and a fish that size, would be a tank. I would estimate at between 10 and 12 pounds, or between 5 and 6 kilo's... or thereabouts, but a 20 pounder?...mmmm nah.

    Andre you are completely clueless at gauging weight, stick to fingerling and pans size stuff please. That fish is a solid 20lb fish,awesome!

    John, you don't say fork or total so that part is confusing but nonetheless a monster of note. To give you an idea, a largie of 68cm fork and 40cm girth is a 10lb fish give or take. Below is a 11lb fish. (weighed with a boga )

    Knowing Gerrit's size and seeing that that fish's head is the size of his hand - that is a beeeg fish. Nicely done.
