Help to guesstimate bass weight

Recommended Posts

Yesterday went fishing with my wife. The weather was hot and humid - usual during summer in NC. Since nothing was biting for a couple of hours, I got lazy and stopped twitching the worm and simple started slowly drugging it across the bottom. I started getting hits! Couldn't believe it! At the first "drag" I caught this guy, but sure enough I didn't bring my scale, since didn't hope to catch anything during this weather. Help me to guesstimate the weight of this fish. I'm 6'1.

Thanks.

As I lick my thumb and place it in the sky like Thornton Melon judging the wind for a triple lindy, I'm going to guess 3.25 pounds. :)

3 pounds on the nose.

Dragging a worm or jig is my favorite retrieve. When it gets tough I like to slow down and "count rocks".

Definately a new state record. I'd call the fish & game people and show them the photo. You may be due a certificate. Or its about 3 pounds. I'm bad at judging weights.

State record for sarcasm. But for this pond it is a record. Usually the fish from this pond is around 1 lbs.

I do drag jigs but never tried worms. Didn't think it would work during "dog days".

Soft plastics are probably #1 year-around, but specifically during the summer. 

I suspect your fish is +/- 3 lbs.

Dragging worms is effective all year.  It's one of those things that's always there to use imo

Ok. Thanks to everyone. Can't wait for the next fishing trip and try worm dragging again.

Bring your scale

I'm with @roadwarrior +/- 3 lbs

But I'll lean toward the + side of 3 :)

As soon as I opened up and looked at your picture , I told myself a number before I read posts. 3. And apparently everyone else thinks so too. Nice bass .
