How big is this pike?

 Putin claims it was about 41 pounds.  Russian critics say he is lying and it's probably only 20 pounds.  What are your guesses?  http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/07/29/Russian-bloggers-cast-doubt-on-Putins-fishy-tale

Unless Putin is over 7 feet tall; I'd say around 20 pounds.

Is it okay to argue with a russian?
I am guessing if he says its 40lbs they should just go with it.

Not that particular Russian. Dude is as badass as they come.

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

Actually the story says 21kg, which is close to 46 pounds. I have two theories:

The person who weighed it accidentally weighed it with lbs instead of kg or wrote the wrong unit of measurement and it is actually 21 pounds OR MORE LIKELY some dumbass reporter along the way accidentally or on purpose wrote the wrong unit of measurement and the whole story got blown out of proportion by false media reporting...of course that NEVER happens.

I say that is a 21 pound pike and was probably originally reported that way.

20 KG equates to roughly a bit over 40 lbs.

Lost in translation.

44 pounds. I doubt the pound to kilogram theory, they have been on the metric system for ever, wouldn't even be a consideration. More likely Putin is stroking his ego.

Maybe Putin drank 1.75 of Stoli? I like Stoli, slam it ice cold, follow it with a good olive.

 He is most certainly NOT shooting skeet in the staged photo. Anyone who actually shoots skeet would have a vest on to hold extra shells not to mention from that angle, you should be able to see the thrower tower.

That fish is 19.9 lbs, I should know I have caught a dozen of them over the years.

Have no idea what a 20+ lb pike looks like though.
