HOW MAVY POUNDS DO YOU THINK THE ONE IN MY AVATAR HERE IS, I DONT HAVE A SCALE
My guess is 15 -16 lbs.
IT WAS TWENTY FOUR ON A HUMAN SCALE, BUT THATS NOT ACURATE, ITS HEAD WAS REALY WIDE YOU CANT SEE IT IN THAT PICTURE, I NEED A SCALE
I would second that... Might be a tad lighter. Would have like to see another angle.
Scales are worth the weight in gold...
Also next time get a girth and length measurement there is a weight conversion chart I can point you in the directions that gives you a pretty good idea.
If you weigh it on a bathroom scale weigh yourself first then hold the fish and weigh again. Subtract one from the other and you will have an accurate weight.
Jake that is a nice fish regardless of what he weighed. Check out the BOC sponsor, Coffey Marketing for some quality scales.
ID JUST LIKE MORE OPINIUNS, I CANT JUDE, IT WAS BIGGER THAN IT LOOKED IN THE PICTURE , WIDE HEAD, IM STILL SAYING 24
Nice fish My guess would be 16 or 17 (judging by the pic). The camera never does them justice does it?
The fish in my picture weighed 28lbs. I am 6'1 and 440 lbs. (I know I need to seriously diet).
I tend to think fish are much much bigger than they truly are. Just last week I saw a guy catch a Blue Cat that I would have swore was 5 or 6 lbs. but it was barely 3. Wal-Mart has scales for $5.00 that are dead on accurate and go up to 50lbs. Or just google Fish Weight conversion by length and girth. I know Roland Martin website has a program where you just enter the measurements and it will calculate the weight. Regardless any Flathead caught on Rod and reel is a serious accomplishment or dumb luck nothing short of a miracle. Great Fish no matter! :wink:
I'll take a stab at it and say 17#. A scale tells the truth!! A must have for those bigger fish. A great investment!!
sorry,but i am going with around 15 to 17 pounds.
Oh Goodness! I'de say that there is a 5 pounder and I would prolly use it for bait for my bluegill that I use for bait for bigger Flats BUDDY! Dont make me come over there and show you how it is done!
Well you see I am a 200lb man and this is a really big truck behind me by the way but this Flatty I am holding here is 1.5 lbs and yours looks to be a little bigger so yeah........ 5lbs MAYBE!
Twelve pounds......they look 25% smaller from the side, and 25% larger from the top!!!
I will say that will go about 12 to 15 lbs . I agree with someone else that said that they always look larger than they realy are. Just a fue weeks ago we cought a Big Blue Cat , there was Five people onthe boat. and we all started guessing what that fish would weigh . This fish was 51 inches long and had a 30 inch gurth . One of use said 70lbs. one said 80lbs. anouther said 60lbs well it did weigh 60 lbs . You just got to get you some scales.
