Nice fish, but who are they fooling? The guy on the right looks like he is going to bust something, he's pushing those fish too far! Nice fish don't need to be pushed, they should be held close. And loved!

Good observation rock. Those could be 16 inch snapper for all we can tell. I would suspect that they are bigger than that, but they are certainly not the knee-to shoulder-sized monsters that they appear to be in this 2 dimensional illusion. I'll bet that their grins are for the trickery rather than the excitement of the catch!

No, L, those are real grins. Having been a long time practitioner of "The Push", my learned opinion tells me that those fish are in the 15# range (+/- 3#). This puts them in the "Shit eating grin" category of Nice Catches! But, knowing what I know now, "The Push" just cheapens the affair. My .02

Where were they diving? What kind of structure/rig?
