Possible new PB

Recommended Posts

Don't know, but it's a fine fish!

Our "weight calculator" in "Tacklebox" at the top of the

page says 23.5' X 18" = 9.745 lbs

8-)

Wow, neat calculator, but definitely not over 9, I'm going to stick with a guesstimate of somewhere between 7 and 8, but yeah, won't ever know, but it was a nice peaceful day fishing regardless.

seeing fish laying on there side on the ground makes me :(

She was out of the water for all of 30 seconds since I didn't have to weigh her, and she swam back to her hole just fine giving me a bit of a shower on the way out if it makes you feel better. I didn't have a tape measure either, so I felt compelled to line her up next to the rod to use as a gauge in the pic. But seriously, I didn't realize laying them on the grass was more abusive or detrimental to their health than contact with boat carpet, landing nets, hands/clothing, or bumping around the inside of a live well for a few hours (you fish tournaments?). I'll take your criticism into consideration next time I go fishing. And nice to meet you too, sir. :)

Great fish. May have potential to get bigger. Has a huge mouth and head on it.

Nice fish! Don't lay them down like that unless you are keeping them. I say 4-5lbs. CONGRATS

Nice fish, and most of the time it's impossible to tell the size from a photo. I've seen fish caught that I swear were going to weigh 7 or 8 and they barely hit six. On the other side I've had fish I would swear would only hit 4 but end up being over five. That was a big healthy fish and it looks like it could still get bigger. So congrats on the fish and go get another one!!
