i caught this at the delavan pond sunday. it was almost exactly 24” long, but we dont have a scale, and all the bait shops were closed. i tried some of those online size to weight calculators, and i think it weighed more than 6 lbs. hell, the head alone weighed that! LOL

Heck of a nice fish regardless.  6 pounds doesn’t sound unreasonable to me.

I agree. Somewhere between 4-6 sounds about right.
