The basic formula for calculating the weight of a largemouth bass or smallmouth bass is: length x length x length divided by 1600

Girth is also a factor and can vary the weight by as much as a half pound. However, the chart above will give you a fair estimate of the weight of the fish.

Remember... fishing for largemouth bass and smallmouth bass is a great sport. Make sure to obey local regulations. And when fishing for bass, live bait is great, but fishing with lures will ultimately make you a better fisherman. Plastic worms and Rapala crankbaits are some of the most popular fishing lures for catching bass.
