    Id say 10 pounds. You need a scale if you are that worried about it. You can get one cheap at Wally World.

    Just to give you a idea a 10Lb cat is around 27" and a 20Lb is around 36". Its hard to tell by the pic but I also say yours is around 10Lb range.

    I can tell you it is every bit of 15+ Im pretty good at looking at pics and guessing weights, unless your 6'5 250lbs Thats when it gets ruff :smile2:
    I can tell by the head, looks like a big male to me:wink: congrats!

    p.s. If you buy a scale don't spend any less than $20 on one. it will either $crew you or it will make the fish out bigger than it is.... nothing more annoying to me than someone claiming their eight pounder weighs twenty

    I used to be pretty good at guessing the weights on large stripers to within 1/2 lb.......but cats can be a little more tricky. I say that it weighs between 12-14 lbs.:big_smile:Nice Catch:cool2:

    are you holding it towards the camera? this one is 24 pounds even on a digital scale, she was full of baby carp and eggs. yours looks longer. it's hard to guess the weight on cats man.
