  1. In northern lakes the anticipated length of a female largemouth bass is as follows:
    At the end of the -First Year4"Second Year7 1/2"Third Year9"Fourth Year11"Fifth Year13"Sixth Year15"Seventh Year17"Eighth Year19"Ninth Year21"Tenth Year23"Eleventh Year25"

    To determine the weight of a largemouth bass in the absence of a scale, the following formula based upon linear measurements of the fish is a reliably accurate method of calculating its weight: L x G x GW = -----------800

    L = Length [in inches] from nose to fork in tail

    G = Girth [in inches] around fleshiest portion of body W = Weight of fish in pounds
