      Still around 3 pounds give or take. That is a very nice bass. It depends on where you fish, but north of the Mason/Dixon line you could fish for a lifetime for a four pounder so you should consider it a very nice catch.

      In the deep south, where they eat and grow year round, they get real big (that one would fit crossways in their big old mouth) and a 12 pounder is not uncommon but they go much bigger.

        Dakotaman, I live well north of the M-D Line and I catch 4 pounders and bigger every year. In a local tournament you need a couple 4's or better to even be in the money. I would put that bass at about 3 pounds too.

          DMS, there are certainly 4 pounders in that cool country but I contend that you have to know what you are doing or fish a lot to see them. The bass get much bigger in Florida where they eat all year round.

            I was going to say 4 pounds but that would be the upper end. Somewhere between 3 and 4 for sure.
            In MN a 4 pounder is a really nice bass, 5 pounder is a great bass, 6 pounder is a huge bass. State record is just over 8.

              Probably end up heavy on the Country side but I’m starting with a favorite from a couple years before the Kid was born. Still rings true.
