Default Derby Smack and guesstimates

Anyone have any guesses on what size fish the Derby will bring in through out the year?
Here's mine, and I'm not saying I'll be the one to kill them but this is what I think it'll take to get first:

Red Snapper...High 20's to low 30's I'll say 28.5
Black/Mangrove... 13,5
Trigger 10+ to win 11.2 (sorry Dave and AA)
AJ over 83
Gag Grouper over 52
Scamp 8
Red grouper 18
Cobia 58
Flounder 7.5
Shovelnose 2.6
Spiney 7.9

there are others but that's my guesses! That's the species I'll be
targeting and I think it'll take that for a first place finish
Any other predictions?

Well, seeing as AA wont let me talk smack on the official thread, I decided to revive this one!

Looks like with help from others. I've got my trigger guestimate covered (thanks Dave 10.5# ....I'd said 10+)

I'd called 7.9 on the Spiney and thanks to Afogg we have a 7.something so that's close but, no offense Afogg, I hope it doesn't stay atop the board

Time to focus on AJ next ...see if I can help Toner get that number up to the 80's

saw a Gag yesterday that would hit, possibly 30 on the scale. Maybe more as I thought about it 'cause he already had the black splotching on his belly (copper belly for the old tymers) and I thing that happens at about 40 and above

So, I was looking at the leader board and I'm not so far off on many of my "Preseason" guesstimates!
