Is this a fishy story?

Check out the guys holding the fish. Do they look strained from holding a 264 pound fish?

I would have said it's in the water, but it ain't..

Their facial expressions would also confuse me, they don't look like guys who would be holding a 240 pounder...

Maybe the article was wrong and the 120kg was a 120 pounds? Don't know, but you're correct... It does look fishy.

Looks like photoshop to me. If you look at the dude on the left who's arm is visible, a 250 pound fish would be bulging at the belly because of the way it's being held.
