I caught a 5.5 lbs largemouth in Wisconsin last year. I had it mounted. It was 19.5 inch long with a girth of 15 inches. I used Bob Hicks formula and it was right on the button. My fish was originally weighed at a meat market store scale, which are very accurate. The inspectors monitor them periodically to avoid consumer fraud. My largemouth measured 19.25 inches long with a girth of 15 inches. If Jason's smallmouth was fat it could be 5.5lbs.
