That's a fat SOB! My guess is as good as anyone's but maybe more like 11-12?

I bet it goes 15. I caught a 35 inch pike when I was a kid that I had mounted and it weighed 11. It didnít have the girth that yours has.

Not much of a "weight" guy. I once had a fat 36" that went 13# on a certified scale. Nice fat pike.



Toward that end I'd be willing to give you 12 #. I think 15# is a bit unrealistic..
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

Still a great fish! I haven't had one like that for a while. Maybe tomorrow...  ;D

It looks like it weighs what your scale says. I've got a 43" er hanging on my wall and it tipped the scale at 23 lbs. Mine has way more girth than your fish, 21".

Probably close.  This one was 18lbs, but only 36" long.  The fat preggos have some weight!

Thanks for the input guys. Just to clarify that's not me or my fish. Hes a guy my friend and j fish with occasionally. Were a little skeptical of some of his stories. He's a great guy dnt get me wrong. I have plenty of pike that size under my belt as you all can see in my post "nice western mass pike"
