Very nice fish,

His back part is not as thick as the head..If so I'd say close to 7 BUT becasue it's much slimmer I'd say 5 1/2.. to ..6 pounds.. If you had the lenghth and girth you could get a very accurate weight. There is a formula.

Exactly , I estimated that fish to be a good 22- 24 inches..
If that's the case that fish should be easily between..5 1/2 to 8 lbs..He's a little slim for 8 but could go 6 1/2.

Here's a 3 1/2 I caught last year..yours is much bigger.
