40 lber. SAME Fish I Caught 3 Years Ago!

Take a look at my signature photo at the top on the right on this page.  That was my first massive mirror.  I caught that fish three years ago and it weighed 36 lbs. 8 oz.  Now, take a good look at my 40 lb.fish  below and the scale pattern.  It is the exact same fish and was landed at a location close to where I caught the other one.  The huge mirror has gained 4 lbs. in the last 3 years.  This time it had a much bigger gut than I remembered, making for more weight.  The camera angles are different (top right I am holding the fish outward.  This time I am holding the fish close to my body), but clearly it is the exact same fish! Isn't catch and release a beautiful thing!
