We have often wondered how some guys can pretty much tell the exact weight of a fish by length or just by looking at it. 

A unique skill that gives way to some creative 'accounting' when it comes to bragging rights on the size of your catch. To set the record straight and help novice anglers train themselves in this art we came up with this sizing chart for Smallmouth Bass.
