OLC Article Posted by: old_user on Nov-15-06 10:11 AM (EST)
Great article, as of the two fish I would have to say #19 look just a tad longer but not by very much, I would hate to have to judge that one.
#19 looks a little longer.
the little triangle under the 16" mark is covered by 19, 45 leaves just a tiny corner still uncovered. Anyhow, I love the concept of the OLC.
It's too close to call on my POS monitor, but if this fishing contest went to "the room" the bottom fish (19) is a clear winner only because it is better documented. Great idea. Great article.
I think they should be both disqualified because you can't see the beginning end of the ruler. It is darn-near impossible to tell which is bigger due to the way the pictures were taken. If I had to guess I would say #45.
If one assumes that both fish have the mouth in the proper place, then #19 looks a tad longer.
However, this also assumes that bigger is the same as longer. What about weight? Many fishing contests use weight, not length as the arbiter.
#19 seems slightly bigger, however if it is a tie the #19 picture is better in a tie since the other fishes nose is possibly clipped.
