It does look like a very big Pike for sure. But a picture that bad, leaves a lot of doubt.

I just put it side by side with the Lothar Louis pike, the size and proportions look similar (Im not saying its the same fish), but size wise its very similar. But like you said, the technology available today,theres no limit to what can be done with the likes of photoshop.
If its real, then hats off to the lad, but if this gets accepted as a true british record,then I'll eat my shoe.

I would love it to be true but a 1.2acre water that gets pike fished on a regular basis (Not by me) and the fish has never come out before, it just does not make sence.
