I caught this in a central ohio private pond and didn't even think to measure it and didn't have a scale. It definitely felt over 5-6 lb but I was wondering what you guys think as far as length and weight go.

These things are always subjective but I would guess it in the 5.5 to 6lb range. If It was fat and full of eggs It looks like it would be in the 7 plus range with a huge frame like that. Nice Old Mature Bass for sure. Congratulations! Awesome fish for a summer day in Ohio!

The way you are holding the fish on the belly makes it hard to tell how much gut there was. The more I look at it though Its entirely possible that is a 6.5 to 7 lb fish. And if you said it was pushing 8lbs I would not doubt it. Time to carry a scale! :)

That picture could be the cover of a kayak fishing mag. OGF should pay you to use it for their banner picture. Awesome fish!
