One of my employee's son caught this in a pond near Kerrville a couple of days ago. Has to be one of the longest bass I've ever seen. It obviously needs some food as well. And yes he released it back into the pond, hopefully to put some weight on.

Hard to say being long armed by a kid. It could be 30" but could also be 25

His Dad told me he thought it was easily over 26". I agree with the weird angle of the picture plus the long arm, but it's obviously very very long and with some weight could be truly giant.

Caught one like that at Martin Creek several years ago. Was 29 3/4" and weighed 9lbs even.

I'd guess 26 1/2- 27". I'm surprised how thick the tail is for being that skinny. I bet it's an old fish. Congrats to your buddy's son! Still a great fish! Did they weigh it? Probably about 7lbs.

I caught one similar to that when I was a tyke. Don't remember the exact measurements but it was over 21" and only weighed about 3 pounds.

The fish was actually weighed. It weighed right at 10#. So now, how long was it?
