Of course I didn’t have a scale but this is definitely my Pb. T was chasing blue gill at almost 90 degrees with bluebird skies caught it in about 12” or less of water. It almost swam into my grandson trying to get his bluegill that he caught. Gave the kid a heart attack lol. I made three casts to it with the bull worm I had on. No scale but I really think it was around six definitely more then five pounds.

Thanks guys. A little bummed about the scale though. Now I can only call it a 5+ and not a 6 or 7. As I was having drinks on the fourth yesterday and talking about it, it was starting to get quite big lol.

From  the butt of your rod to the end of the foregrip is probably around 13 to 14 inches . I'm guestimating this bass is 23 to 24 inches and fat . That would be 7 to 8 lbs  according to a length to weight scale .

You shouldn't have to guess length and girth measurement the bass has been out of water for sometime and the reel has line to use for a ruler. Length X Length X Girth /1200= weight in lbs.

How hard can it be to cut a piece of line to use for both length and girth?

I didn’t do any of that. I forgot my scale, I took a few pics and put it back in the water.

You can still get a fairly accurate  measurement by using the photo to measure the length and that bass has lots of girth .

All you can do is guess. Let's say the rod handle 14" -15" to the end of the locking ring.

Adult bass heads are about 1/3rd the overall length = 21"-22" length bass.

Average girth is 75% of the length, this bass appears to be closer to 80%.

estimated length 22", eadriamted girth 17 1/2", estimated guess the weight is 7 lbs.

It's so easy to cut a piece a piece of line if  no scale and eliminate the guess work.
