Default Guess the weight

You can see my self-take photographic skills still need a little honing

Had this lively beauty on Thursday night, guess the weight?

My guess would be around the 13st mark. As for the Fish, that's a tough one but i'll have stab at 7 1/2lb

Around 7 judging by your finger size in relation to the gill cover. So hard to judge by a picture.
How are you taking your pictures?
