Think de Wiz may be close.Got a few bass mounted and the smallest is 3.4 and it is shade over 19 inches so maybe add close to one lbfor the 19 inch,the 17.75 may be around 2.5.Do have nice beast,5.02 lb awaiting Sonny Miller to finish,T-Funk chunk,caught on 6 lb test and micro-lite pole,quite fun watching dat beast tail-walk a few times!!!

Length x girth x girth / 800 is the formula. Using that formula, your fish is just over 7lbs.
A bass from the spillway that is 14 inches long will be 2 lbs all day long. A 19 inch long fish weighing only 2 lbs is a sick fish IMO.

Is the fish 19 inches long and the girth 17.75 inches? or is it 2 fish..1 is 19 and the other is 17.75?
If it is 2 fish and those are the lengths, I would say the 19 incher is 4+ and the 17 incher is 3+. But, it all depends on when they were caught. This time of the year they are heavy with eggs. If you catch them in August, they will not be as heavy due to the strain of the hot water.

The 19.0', 18.25' and 17.5'' were all released due to egg sack barely protruding from anus areas! Looked like basketballs with head and tail fins...

MOST INDICATIONS are that the 19.0' green trout weighed mid-higher of three pounds...ALMOST four-pounds!

3 lb to 4 lb plus
