Haha, photoshopped....... If you only knew how technologically bankrupt I am....

Stella SW4000PG running PE2, fish estimated as 20 kg, though more confident of 100 cm length as accurately measured. Took quite some releasing but large deck hose in the mouth helped to bring him back to life before released.
