guess the weight.

Recommended Posts

My wife caught this bass, unfortunately we didn't have any way to weigh it. I'm guessing that it's around 15 inches. This is her shoe which is a size 7 ½ size women's shoe . Does anyone have a guess on the weight of this fish?

2.25-2.75 lbs She's fat so she might hit 3.

(Fyi- It's very unhealthy for the fish to be laid on the asphalt like that. The slimy stuff on the outside of a fish is actually the fish's immune system. Best off to hold him/her for the picture and then release it.)

Length X Length X Girth = Weight

           1200

15 x 15 x 18 = 3.4 Pounds

       1200

I estimated the Girth.

You can redo the formula with the correct girth measurement.  :)

It was her fish so it was her decision to keep or release it. She wanted to let it go and so we did.

Thanks for all of the guesses!

Well I think if you were to ask her how big yours was, you would appreciate an inflated number so you should return the favor and tell her it was 4 pounds.
