My PB Bass
« on: October 20, 2017, 05:50:55 PM »

I caught my PB last weekend. Unfortunately, my scale wouldn’t work! However it measured approximately 25” long and one side of the girth was 9”. Any idea approx how much this might of weighed?

According the FWC calculator, at a length of 25 and a girth of 18 (9" on one side times two for total girth) that weighs about 9.5 lbs. Great catch! What did you get her on?

This is the calculator link. There are other weights for that length girth that take in certain considerations

depending upon condition, that would be about right.
really tough to judge size of fish in photos.  But a 25 inch fish sure ought to be in the 9  pound or better range. I would think.

Really hard to tell, it is all based on the time of year and other things.

Spring Time before spawn a 10+ no doubt.

This time of year I have caught several in the 23-25 inch range and they all have weighed between 7- 7 1/2 lbs.

It's a good fish no matter what it weighed!

Eternal Optimism. It's what drives me to fish. Next cast is THE cast that will provide the reason why I am here. Big Bass, Small Bass, No Bass-- Everyday and Every Time out learn something. What worked and what didn't and why. In the end go enough days and then, Today is the day that it will all come together and the Fish Gods will smile.

I use a certified postage scale. Can zero it out for a measuring board, and no hook or anything like that to damage jaws/gills (better for CNR, IMHO).
Just remember, once you put it on the internet, everyone will cut the weight in half no matter what!
Seriously though, that's a nice fish, congrats! That would be a record fish for my half of the state here.

I carry the Rapala electic scale in my boat.  Unfortunately accurate.  I say unfortunate as a fish I thought was 'double digits' was not and when I checked the scale at  home with known weights:  it was accurate.   :( ;D
