    SDFISH Members,

    I need your help. I caught this beauty yesterday. I was caught without a scale. I measured her using my fishing stick and she was over 26" long.

    Let me know what you guys and girls think?... Thanks for your help.

    Wow, no guess but congrats. You didn't catch it right there, did you? I imagine you "got out" there.

    Nice catch man. No matter the weight, just call it 10....because if the majority of us agree that it's up there. Then most everybody else will believe it being 10 when they look at the pic...just say you digi'd it...LOL. Again NICE CATCH!!

    If you ever get caught without your scale again measure the length and girth then use this formula:

    Length X girth X girth divided by 800

    this will put you real close.

    Your fish is 26" long and looks to be about 17" girth

    26 x 17 = 442 x 17 = 7514 / 800 = 9.39lbs

    Way to go.

    I agree with this post here. If you find that you do not have a scale, or tape measure you can always take some line and run it the length of the fish, then cut it so that you will be able to measure that line later. Do the same with the girth. Now you should have two lines that when you get home you can measure them out and get a very close reading as to what the weight of the fish in.

    I like the Length X Girth X Girth divided by 800 if you do not have a scale. It works very well.

    Just another helpful hint. :)

    We try to help make things easy. The last thing you want to be doing is working on math problems out on the lakes or saltwater.

    Re:Guess Her Weight??? I need your help out there

    I would guess around 8. LMB's take on a different shape
    when they get into the double digits. The depth of field
    on the picture is also deceiving. I've caught several fish
    very similar to that one. They scaled out at 7 lbs.

    You can't really go by comparing the size of the fish to
    the person cause many people like holding the fish up
    to the camera. Mattlures presented a perfect example
    in his post a few days ago. I look more at the fish, the
    shape of it. The main features of a LMB change in proportion
    to eachother as the fish gets beyond 10lbs. The fish your
    holding is still correctly proportioned. I don't know
    if i'm explaining myself correctly.

    It's still a beautiful fish. Congrats on the catch. I might
    suggest that you purchase a scale. South Bend has scales as
    cheap as $2.50. Some even clip on your keychain. I've compared
    the keychain model to my Rapala Digital and found it to be
    accurate enough.

    Cool Fish :) Keep up the good work :cheer:
