Here it is...The only thing I know is that it bottomed out a 25lb spring scale. I would like to get estimates from you guys. I'm looking for something a little bigger this year!

Here is a way of determining how much a fish weighs by measuring it .... This is put out by the Florida Division of Wildlife and I have seen Roland Martin us it on TV before ... it is real close ....... Garry-


A common option used for estimating fish weigh is: Girth (in inches)-squared (number multiplied by itself), times length (in inches) divided by 800. A 22" long bass with a girth of 15" weighs about 6.2 pounds using this formula.

Nice fish! I would guess it weighs in the low 30s. If you had measurements we could make more accurate guesses. Thanks for posting it.

Congratulations on the dandy flathead, I would also guess 30 to 35 but it's hard to judge a fish by the picture. No matter what it weighed, it was a dandy.
