Let’s all agree not to boga grip our fish… mkay? It’s bad. It can injure the fish beyond repair.
So… how big was that fish? Here is what I know… the distance from my thumb to my pinkie is 9 inches when my fingers are splayed open. With that knowledge I can get a really solid estimate of the length of any fish. Then, you can put that length into a fish weight calculator and presto… you have your number, more or less, and the fish didn’t get hung vertically by its lower jaw.

And don’t take them out of the water!
or a quick shot of the fish against the rod handle while its in the water?
Or use the rod. 30 inch sections
Anymore I just make up random things like, “dude, double top for sure”, or “wow, that fish was at least that big, you know?!?!”
