    Dav,

    regarding weight to length comparisons for bass. The Bass Anglers Sportfishing Society produce a handy tape measure with the average weights of fish against the overall length (the tip of the nose to the the tip of the tail). I suspect you measured your fish from the tip of the nose to the fork of the tail. 65cms overall length gives a weight about 6 1/4lb but of course fish vary a great deal. My my biggest Yorkshire bass (shown below) weighed 8-2 and was extremely fat and measured only 1cm more than your fish at 66cms but it had a girth of 41cms. I've also had 7lb fish at 70cms and 71cms. 71cms is the length given on the tape for an 8lb bass.
