    That's 50.5"? Is that fork length? (measured from eye to eye, going around the fork?)

    ...Just breaking your chops.

    I'm glad to see that dolphin are biting out there.
    Nice job catching.
    Thanks for the report.

    I used Total Length and it was indeed 50.5". In fact I rounded down. I laughed when I actually saw the length because it made it sound so big. I would estimate the fork length at 43-44" since I didn't squeeze the tail to gain length. Looking at research stats on dolphin that would put this fish 21-23lbs (with a range of 18-29lbs) since this fish had good girth but a light belly. With that in mind I am sticking to my 20lb estimate because it doesn't matter a hoot to me if it was 20, 21, or 25lbs (or 18 for that matter). I got plenty of meat off it and a good fight. THAT is all that matters.
