Yes I need to know what you guys think this SM weighs in at. I caught it in May of this year out of our local river (Dan River) and just finally pried the pictures from my best buddys camera today!!

I'm thinking between 3 and 4 lbs and no I did not keep this fish, only had him on the stringer to live while I ran across the river to get the camera lol

2 -2 1/2 lbs. It takes something that "looks like a 5" to get to 3 lbs.

Well, length doesn't mean as much as you might think.

The fat fish in my avatar was just over 7 lbs. The other

fish is my PB and was nearly 4" longer, but just weighed

another pound.

Tough to say.

2 1/2 - 3 is what I'd guess.

Length can be decieving when considering weight. I've caught 18 inch fish that only weighed 2- 2 1/2. Then on the flip side, thi spring, I caught one that was just shy of 16' and weighed 3 1/2.

Anyway, nice chunk!

Well mostly this year (when the water was up) I waded in anglers park which is in Dan Daniel's Park. Thats the biggest smallie by far I have seen anyone ever catch in the Dan, the average most of the time is 1/2 - 1 1/2 lbs but its still fun if you can get into them.

Thanks guys!

I didnt accurately measure it but I want to say it was around 15 or 16 inches in length and it had a fat old belly on it...I really wish I would have had a friggen scale! I guess that will be my next investment. :)

hey guys, just so you know, ive learned that the average 20" smallmouth should be 4 lbs, and 20" largemouth 5 lbs! of course, this all gets messed up in the spring and sometimes winter but............ summer it works great! :D
