Might hit 3 lbs, give or take 1/2 a lb.  Definitely not a 6lbr but a nice fish all the same.  :) Nice and dead :(  I guess we can be happy its not a 6  :-/   I hope he at least ate it.

This is a 5,..for reference

I'll post a pic like LBH did to compare. I'm 5'4 (not that has to do with much) and this fish is 5.2 lbs.....That fish looks like mid 2's.

I agree it looks like a 2 - 2.5. No way it's 6....

Here's a 3 pounder on my digital scale, it's been pretty accuate when I weighed my catch then weighed them in at a tourney.

No way that fish is 20 inches either. No way.....Maybe 16 and thats pushing it IMO.

I would say about 2lbs as well.

lol I think he is well on his way of being a classic fisherman though telling people stories like that. What makes it worse though is that he is showing the picture of it. At least if your going to fib a little, don't flash around pictures like that.  :D

On many Texas lakes there is a 14 minimum size limit; I've looked at many a 14 fish and the bass is barely over 14. A 14 bass in Texas is probably 1 ¾ - 2 pounds and this bass is maybe 2 lbs.

Also reference the kid's hands; if this bass was 6 lbs plus he would be able to stick his entire fist into its mouth which aint gonna happen with this bass. Also look at the kid's middle finger which appears to be around 3 in length if this bass is 20 you would have to multiply his middle finger 6 ½ times to equal 20.  After putting the photo in Paint and measuring the middle finger it come out a little over 4x its length which put the bass at 13 to 14.

6?  No...not a chance.  If it was, that would make the fish in my avatar 317 lbs.

Haha, so true Chris!!! My fiancee caught a huge carp at Ft Belvoir a few months back got it to the shoreline but it snapped her line when me friend Troy went to net it. Every time she tells the story of it splashing by the shoreline and the 15 minute fight it gains another pound. I mean I know I exaggerate sometimes but I'd say that fish Grimlin just showed is pretty dang close to the one d's friend caught. That fish is a bit over 2 lbs, I'd call 2lbs 5oz or so. Nice fish, but not 6!

Ps: Did he end up eating it? Or is he getting a mount...?

And oh yea... that pic in my Avatar... 2.5lbs even on my digi.

Here is one I caught that was about 13inch and it was about 1.25-1.50Lbs.  His is a little bigger (a little longer looking, not fatter) then this one, so I would say 2Lbs or so.
