Welcome aboard!

Almost impossible to do an analysis of that
bass even with your friend's height. How far
is the bass in front of him, etc., are other 
things that would need to be known.

The bottom line is any of us will only provide
a best guess. In the 4 pound range is mine.

Sorry it is so wide, but tough to know for sure.
It has a good-size head, probably a female and
all spawned out... Just my .02.

Others may have a better guess.

Edited by Darren.
adjusted my guesstimate after looking at picture again...

I would guess 3-3.5 pounds. It has head and length of a larger fish, but looks to be on the thin side. If it had more of a belly that fish could go over 4 easy.

Looks kind of skinny for it's length. It's really hard to judge but I would say 3.5lb

Hello and Welcome to Bass Resource ~

Nice bass.

So you guys saw & held that fish but you're having difficulty determining it's size ?

Imagine how we feel.

These items are very helpful with that.

Hard to tell without seeing the belly as well. With that being said I have pulled a bunch this season out of ponds very similar in size and I am 5'11 as well, and they were all right at 3lb or just above

That is a DD !!! (decent/dink)  Really, 4 lbs would be my guess, but my scale shrinks all my fish.

Based on average finger/hand size the bass is approx 21 1/2" long, average body girth about 75% of the length. Formula length X length X girth / 1200 = 6 lbs.

Tom

PS, simply cut a length of line for length and girth or... Get a scale.

Ain't no way that bass is over 3-3 1/4 lbs!

I'd say between 18-20 inches long...between 3.0 - 3.5 lbs.

Next time take a photo with the rod/reel up against it.  When you get home look at the picture and put a tape measure to your rod/feel and you'll come close to its length.

3.5 pounds I'd say. Maybe a nice one for the area you fish.
