How much does this fish weigh?

This was my first fish of the season and being a northern fish this is a pretty decent size fish. It measured out a little over 21" but I didn't have a scale with me.
I caught it on a watermelon 4" Yum Zellamander

not too bust your chops but the fish in my avatar was 20.5 inches and 7.2lbs ;D so those calculations arent aaaaaaaaaaaaalways right bring a scale
Those are some toadish porportions
Conversely, I caught a 21 incher that only weighed 3lb9oz. I dont think LimpingLogan has that problem though. Id say 5.4579lbs.

Now...if you "cheated" and ran your tape from the tips of it's folded tail to the end of it's pulled out lower jaw -I'd say that "21" is 20.25" at best and may be just hitting 5lbs. That is still a big northern bass btw.
If you do use a scale, make darn sure it's calibrated, and check it regularly.
This is something of a pet peeve of mine, as too often fish weights are overestimated and really skew people's expectations of what a "big bass" should weigh.
