Default WHy do bass look so small

When I'm photoed with them ?

I got a 3 3/4 lb spot today (actually weighed it) I had someone photo me
holding it, and dang it looks like it might go 1 lb.

I can post the photo, but man it looks small, not good enough for this group

Worst than that today, my wife wanted fish tonight for supper, ok I'll
keep a few 1 to 2 lb bass, just enough for supper. I fished from just
one spot on the bank, first fish 1 1/2 spot,, in my rusty old fish
basket it went, next fish was the 3 3/4, I threw it back, next fish was
a 1 lb 14 OZ spot, I went to put it in the basket,, the first fish was
gone, examined the basket, and the bottom was messed up,, Ok must keep
bottom of basket on the bottom of the lake to hold the fish, no problem.

I then put 3 more 1 to 2 pound spots in the basket , being very careful,
I had plenty for supper.

Game warden shows up, (I tell him to be careful or the bass will escape)
he lifts the basket to see my catch, two bass escape, no a single word
of apology for letting my fish go from him,, now what makes it worst, 10
min. later his partner shows up and lifts the basket, and another one
escapes, so I have one bass for supper, made me madder than heck, I
switched lures and caught 6 "good" bream in 15 min., then went home, at
least we had fresh fish for supper :-)

Send it anyway; a fish is a fish. I haven't been able to go for a while and
seeing what you guys catch makes my day.

You don't hold them in the classic bass picture hold; at arms length! Maybe
the fish look small because you're big?

Default Why do bass look so small

Objects that are closer to the camera lens are magnified more than more
distant objects. Short focal length lenses such as those on most "point and
shoot" cameras enhance this effect more than telephoto lenses because the
foreground objects in photos taken close up are proportionally closer to the
camera than those in telephoto shots. In the future, hold the fish between
your body and the camera. The fish will look larger and you will look
smaller. You will notice that the stars on fishing shows often hold the fish
an entire arms length closer to the camera to make them look large for TV!

Have a Great Day!
