Seen this maybe 18months-2years ago, cracking bass. At the time I didn't know it had been caught on a lure but I've not been able to find the pic since either. Great fish and find.

Close to 40 years old by all accounts.
Couldn't bring myself to kill anything like that but each to their own.

I wonder if the flesh is a lot tougher being that much older?

Only work I had done was a Bazz lift. You were getting a bit saggy pmsl
Find is good thanks all better now but the op didn't happen cos he was ill. Now he has to have the op 2 weeks before the baby is due...... How are you and yours?

This may be a 35 or even a 65 lb bass, it could also be a 15 lb bass. It's all good to hold a fish way out in front and shoot close with a wide angle lens but it makes it very hard for the non photographic expert to judge its size.

Hiding fingers under the gills helps but you always have huge fat fingers showing somewhere. A shot with a fish on a measure mat is a much easier way to judge if it's genuine.

I think it don't look that big .......

The picture with the chap sat in the boat holding one , looks far bigger ,
Think that one where he has a moustache , sat in a harbour , was about 27 pound , but looks bigger than this one .......
The bloke in this picture looks small to ....

Photos , all look different ,
Still a lovely bass mind .......

But with the blokes pin head , and the thin door behind him , ?????

23 pound at best ,,,,,,lol

It's really quite easy to get an accurate enough weight from what he's given us.

The guy looks to be of light build showing four finger tips, if you put your own fingers in that same position and measure the width I think you would find it to be close to 2.5 ins across the nails.

Scale that across the body to get the overal length then use that against a length to weight scale.

Don't get me wrong it's a bloody good fish, it's just spoilt trying to make it look like a 65 pounder in my opinion.

And being said it went 35 caught my eye
If memory serves me right
There wasn't a lot of info on it even in the mag
So who knows mate

Without getting caught

Looks like I'm going to be real careful if I get a double

Pics weight measuring
May just do as I have always done
Measure take a scale from back and tail
Still got scales from doubles from years ago
Like rings on a tree
Can't go wrong
