The fish calculator from Bass Resource states up to 11 lbs for those measurements....so i would guess eight at minimum.

Congratulations on catching a big bass! A bass with a 20 inch girth at 24 inches long should weigh a minimum of 8 pounds.

It's a good size. Your pic is impossible to judge. You held it out so far it's as long as you. Lol

No judgement lol I do it to. It just makes it hard to tell.

I had one a few years ago that was 24.5"X14" that went 7.51. If anything, I'd think your scale is weighing on the light side.

Wish I could see a different angle that shows the girth. The 10.5 I caught in Fl this spring had a 20'' girth.

fish calculators are ridiculous. Just don't even bother. Buy a scale and save the trouble. I had a 10.10 that was 27.5 inches lenght and 19 inch girth. Calculator puts it over 14 pounds. That is a HUUUUUUUUUGE difference. It is hard to believe that fish has a 20 inch girth...

^^ I agree about the girth. It just doesn't show it being that thick.

24" is an old fish regardless of what she's been eating before you caught her or what stage of the spawn she was in. And they don't get old by being dumb. Congrats!

Oh Shasta. The enigma wrapped inside of a conundrum. Fun lake though.
