    PB thread in reports got me wondering how big my pb might be at Barrett. Didn't have a scale for this bass and was wondering if anyone had a guess about how many lbs. this one is? Many thanks!

    Nice fish. I don't know how many fish I've caught that I was sure or at least hoped were around 7 but after putting them on the scale found they turned out to be only 5 plus. Call it miss judgement or just plain hope in the excitement. A scale is a must

    Fishermans rule BS111-2 states....
    "If you get a fat bass and have no scale you can say it weighs as much as you want not to exceed 9.99 lbs."
    It's the rules>>>
    But I'd say 7.25lb

    All big bass weigh 10 pounds. Especially if you don’t have a scale or a camera. We all have a “ Ten Pounder” friend. They hit the cove for 6 fish 7-10 pounds. You run down to the cove and you get 6 fish 2-5 pounds. “ You must if found a different school”...scales just ruin good stories. ( A scale made my 22 pound Bass, into an 18.4 pound Bass. I just hate scales)
