    Alright yall, I caught this last friday after having a hard time getting bait. Got a 6-7 pounder, then this one while unhooking the first cat. At first I thought a gar was playing with my bait, so I decided I'd recast when all I meet is a solid jerk and drag screaming!!! It took me around 15 minutes to land with my bass rig. After getting it in the boat (the hardest part on account that I was by myself and left the net in the car!) I also realized that the batteries were dead on my scale!!! So I've got some pictures (thank God the batteries didn't die in the camera, too:crazy:) but I need yall's help on getting a solid weight down. I figured it weighed from 25-30 pounds. Thanks!!:big_smile:

    I am the worst on guessing a weight on anything but one thing is for sure, that is a nice blue. Congrats on your catch.

    Its gotta be close to that. The best I can help is my #20 was 36' long. His girth was just normal, not fat but not skinny.

    Oh, nice fish for sure, thanks for posting.

    GREAT FISH Stu. Unless you are a 3' tall dwarf, I think that you are real close on the weight. If it was my fish, it would be closer to 40!!

    I would say you are right on with 25-30, great catch! FYI, I keep a cheap manual scale with a tape measure built in (like 3 or 4 bucks at Wally), in case my digital goes out!
