The size of that mouth gave it away. That is one absolute horse!

A flat mat would be more accurate but a horse of a bass, well done.

Official length (to mates) is 57cm.
We measure in overall length, overall it was just over 58cm. But the bottom of the tail was longer than the top so I have come down to 57cm to try and keep people happy.
A couple of people have commented on the mat not being flat? As you can see Iím in a yak, it is hard to measure, hold and take a picture of a fish all at once. Especially when I needed to hold the camera above head height to get it all in! It was dark, there wasnít a decent bank to paddle to for at least a 100mtrs, the fish had got me in the snag so it was pretty stuffed when I finally lip gripped it. I let it go asap.
It is the biggest I have ever caught (and seen in person) so that is all I care aboutÖ.
