Scale Weight Scale Rod

Scale Weight Scale Rod
I caught a Bass in 55,5cm/21,5″ long and 17,5cm/6,5″ at its widest how much would it weigh?

It was caught near Dundee, South Africa. I didn’t have a scale so I marked it off on my rod and measured it when I got back. Please help.
If anyone has caught a fish of similar size tell me + its weight. This one might of been a pregnat female.
It was caught near Dundee, South Africa so its Autum here. It could only be Florida because the dam was stocked by my grandad. If it helps I could fit my fist in its mouth (14 years old not big). Some people asked for girth and thats about 3cm+-. Also the record for that dam is 4,8kg/10,5lb. The dam is rarley fished and you catch little ones cast for cast. I this info any help?

First, congratulations on the nice fish. Second, what kind of bass was it? Largemouth? Smallmouth? Stripper? Or some other kind of bass?

Anyway, you said it “might” be a pregnant female so I am guessing its chubby but not very fat yet. 6.5″ is healthy but it doesn’t sound that thick yet. It doesn’t matter if it is a small mouth, a large mouth or a stripper, it will be under 7 pounds.

If it was a largemouth with a thick tail and a stomach showing, it will be around 6 pounds. If the bass was fat and round (shaped like an American football) with a bloated stomach that’s hanging, you’ll be looking at something around 8 pounds. Since you said it “might be pregnant”, that around 6 pounds figure sounds more applicable.

If it was a smallmouth, it will weigh about 1/4 pound less than a largemouth.
If it was a stripper, I would say its about 5 1/4 pounds.
But whatever it is, its a nice fish.
