OK, I will try not to make a short story long. I am in Mickey Mouse land working for the week and as I am waiting the final 45 minutes for my room to available, I decide I can't go back to TX without catching at least one bass. So I grabbed my Lowrider and went to throw a few casts in the little 6 acre lake behind the property and on the third cast hooked a good one, got her to the bank and was totally surprised when I saw her. Well Murphy being who he is decided that there would not be a soul around to take a good photo so I had to make the best of a selfie and some video from the phone. My problem is I was not prepared for such an event as I didn't bring a scale (One rod and a few baits). I did all I could do which is take a length and girth measurement with a tape measure and let her go. My question is for people familiar with this situation is are the weight calculation estimates accurate?
I have caught a 10.01 and held another 12.8 and another 10.2 and this fish was between the 12 and 10 so I guessed her at 11 something before running the calculations. If somebody has had experience with this I would love to hear your input on the matter. Oh yeah she was 27" long with a 19" girth and the Florida bass weigh calculator says 11.7 which is about what I put her at.
Thanks for any input!
