I may catch crap for this but I'm calling BS. First that looks a little bit photoshopped. And 2nd that guy looks like he is holding that 70lb fish up way too easily. Kind of makes you wonder.

If you look at the blue at the top of the stripers mouth that's a hanging scale with a hook I think.

Looks like there is a blue rope holding it up.

If you look closely it looks like some type of blue rope is holding the fish up and the man is holding it in a way to keep it from spinning on him. I am sure there is no way he could hold a 70# fish up that way. Awsome catch. But I do believe what you are seeing is real, he is just being assisted somehow

If you look above his hand, there is a rope holding the fish up. He's just posing with it, like he's holding it up.

I thought the same thing but if you look it is hanging from a rope

It looks to me that the fish is still hanging on the scale I'm sure. I believe the story.

I have caught stripers and hybrids in the 15 lb range and this one dwarfs those. I will say it looks legit. Stripers are very thick also and weigh a bit more than the appear to be also.

I think it's real, but it looks like it didn't survive. Shame too, it's cool to see them.

It is legit:

He isn't holding it up, it is hanging from a rope.
