Hi,

I am putting this in as it may help anglers judge the weight of their catch. It is of course simply a guide. It is not spot on but it is pretty close.

Just calculated using the guide re my bass, I often see reports that the angler describes the catch as "pan size " is that greater than the 36cm take home size ? for a bass, I feel that too many undersized fish are taken that should be the breeding stock of our future catches, I feel a little sad posting this report, but I know and have seen undersized fish taken. Shocked Shocked

Hi Phil,

That is one of the reasons I put the guide in.

Good link Jack,although the 36 cm''legal limit'' for bass is pathetic,decided by the authorities under pressure
from comercials,most decent anglers and clubs observe a 45cm limit, bass don't mature until at least 46 cms
which is why the anglers trust is pushing for an even larger limit.
Anything under 45cms is undersize in my book.

I agree with Degs I would never take a Bass of less than 45cm. I carry a measure in my tackle box so nothing is taken under size. cheers

What about a maximum size though? The biggest Bass are the breeding females.
