Small Mouth Weight

12 posts in this topic

Caught a SM just under 19" today in Upstate NY. It was as fat as a junior size football. Sorry no pictures. I was in a kayak and was traveling light. 1 pole and a bag of senkos. Anyway, I finally got her to the kayak, landed and placed it on the paddle and made a mark with a hook. I took a measurement when I got back. Biggest SM I ever caught. Any ideas on the weight? I was shaking too much and wanted to get her back in so I didn't even guess on the weight. Thanks...

My guess would be 3#-3.5#. All the smallies I have caught in upstate NY, which are just under 20 inches have weighed an oz or 2 under 3 lbs. With the spawn over up there I have no reason to believe its anywheres close to a true 4#. Don't get me wrong though, a 3# smallie is a very very nice fish which puts up one hell of a fight
