Let's see some monster otter pics!
In Indiana we've only been able to trap otter for about 5 years and are limited to 2 otter or until quota is reached. My biggest is 64 inches long (skinned). [Linked Image]

I do not have a decent pic but my biggest was 45" to the base of the tail and 65" overall fleshed and dried. Did not weigh it either.

Had two big adults yesterday, male and female. I’d guess they were 18 lb +/- a couple lb. Several years ago when I lived in Indiana, I caught one that was 24 lbs. The carcass almost stretched the length of a dodge Dakota tailgate

Not as big as some of these but I pulled my largest of the season today from one of my favorite king salmon rivers. 25.4 pounds on the scale. Haven't measured it yet but we also pulled a 20 pounder on the other side of the set

Edit: 45" to base of tail and just shy of 67" overall

I take it those are skun measurements? Nice otter, I have a certain respect/disdain for the species, but their fur is really soft!
