So Alison's yella could have gone 62cm then?  The roll up mats if not out dead flat can make the fish length appear smaller.

BTW- you need to subtract the width of the end section of the orange plastic ruler to get it back to a level playing field which makes it closer to the metal ones.

At the end of the day, only a fisheries certified measuring device means diddly to a judge. Yes they do have them inspected & certified as accurate to Australian Standards.

I think the 60cm plus Bass are definately out there just few and far between. I caught this one in April and it went 57cm using the Alvey fold out measusing stick, whether it was a true 57cm or not I still enjoyed catching it.

Nice fish Johnny.  The floods have sure helped a lot of people with their PB 's.

Not sure what a Jewie has to do with a Bass argument, but there you go.

Received a report today that Fernvale local JB nailed a genuine 60cm + bass in the Brisbane River yesterday. 57.5cm fork length (why the heck do people insist on the fork length cr@p I'll never know. Legal way to measure is total body length).  :OffTopic)

Anyhow, well done JB, can't wait to see pics if it on a measuring stick of some desciption.

Cheers,

fitz..

I have been watching this thread for ages hoping to see a pic of the monster promised.  Looks like it will come from an unexpected source but looking forward to it all the same.
