    It sure felt heavier than 70 ish but idk.. it was very exciting to catch on 30lb test with 25lb fluorocarbon leader and we never pulled anchor.

    I'm pretty sure the formula is this ;

    length 68" x girth 29" x girth again 29"...divided by 800....= 71.5 ( I missed the half pound )


    That's just a rough estimate.....our fish do seem to be a lot thicker around here, so only the scale knows for sure.

    I'd call him around 80 #

    That's a lifetime fish right there, awesome work. Was there any wire or just a straight fluoro leader?
