Hmmmm: get this. They were smoked by the local smokie here in Russell (Chris, my neighbour, neat guy).

After smoking, the head alone of the smaller one was 1.9kg and the head alone of the bigger one 2.2kg.

As for the Taranaki one.... it always frustrates me when people hold the fish at arms length for a pic, it doesn't make the fish any heavier or longer :n: Just put it on a kayak and take a pic!
Take a look at Viking Kayak pics on Facebook for another view..

Well that is much better, it is a great fish, no need to hold it out like the other pic. Plus the Yak makes it look better too.
