What do you think? The trusty "Law Stick" only went out to 36". There was a good 3 or 4 inches hanging over. I didn't have a scale, and don't want to be telling any "fish stories."

In my former life, as a fool-hearty construction worker, I got very familiar with the weight of a 90lb bag of Portland cement. She felt like she weighed just shy of half as much as a bag. My only frame of reference. :) All the same, that fish made my day yesterday.

Beautiful fish my friend, I caught one close to that size a month ago in grayton and I would say a guess of 25-30lbs is accurate. If you had a girth measurement you could get it close. Im surprised you didnt mention the 4 pompano you caught with it in 45 minutes, lol. That my friend is a busy 45 minutes.

Fishes feel heavier to me than they usually are. All the ones I took the time to weigh an inch or two above and below 40 were in the low to mid 20s. My boga is old though, it could be inaccurate.
