I was fishing the cowboy bass church tournament and around 1:00 pm I got a bit ( under a dock) and set the hook. She came up and I knew it was an over. She was long.. 24 1/2 inches long. Got her in the boat and man it was an ugly fish. Long and skinny like me and just about as ugly. Took her to weigh in and she was 5.99 lbs. Her mouth was a 8 to 9 lber but not her body. I finally get an over but not what I was expecting for an over. To bad it was not a paper tournament.

Not sure why it would matter if it was a paper tournament, Either way it counts

Because if it was a paper tournament... the weight on 24.5" fish is closer to 8.82lb.

see this link: TPWD Bass Weight Estimation Chart

I wonder if this might have been the reason for the skinny fish that you caught?

There was a 5.74 in an event a couple years ago. Might have been Sealy Outdoors. It was one of the big events at Fork.
