Weight of Large and Small Mouth Bass
Weight of Black and Small Mouth Bass
In weight the small mouth black bass runs in most waters from two to three pounds, though much larger ones are sometimes caught. In most places five pounds may be considered the maximum weight of this fish, but in certain waters they have been known to reach a weight of eleven pounds, and even more. In many places one may fish for years and never get a fish weighing over three pounds. The large mouthed black bass runs somewhat heavier in the central and northern sections, but in the South it grows to a much greater weight, and in certain waters of Florida they weigh from twelve to fifteen pounds and specimens of twenty pounds have been taken.
