 I caught my largest largemouth bass over the weekend and my scales battery was dead. Can anyone guess the weight?

Without a scale, I’d say between 4#-6#.

That's a nice bucket mouth.  5 lbs. guesstimate

Got a length? 20" is usually around 5#.
Not fish? Not an option!

If you know approximate dimensions (using your hand and tip-up for reference) you could use the following site...

4 lbs 15 ounces...nice one..
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

Next time try to get a pic with the fish up against something recognizable for scale.  The ol' "hold the fish out to make it look bigger for the camera" trick is fun but makes it hard to guess the fish's size.  There's another pic with the fish closer to your chest but it's hard to guess without knowing how big you are.

All that said, 4lbs.

Nice bass, my guess would be 4.8.   Was the one in the live well the same size?

It looks a bit smaller. I hope nobody hits the live well with a snowmobile or wheeler, because they'd probably take quite the tumble if they did.

Somewhere between 4 to 4.5#

All of 4.5, possibly quite close to 5. Strongly doubt more than that but that’s a very nice NH bass. Congrats.

It would help to know the length -- I would estimate 4 - 4.5 lbs. -- nice fish though regardless of the weight!
