LMB are very deceptive in their weight as most of it comes from their belly. Maybe I'm way off here but it looks like about 8lbs to me. I wouldn't guess anything over 10lbs.

Great fish! If you know the length it's much easier to guess! 23 or 24 inches 8 to 10 lbs , 25 to 26 inches 9 to 11 lbs . This is nit an exact method but it's usually pretty close ! If you knew length and girth I could give you a very close guess!

I've had smaller fish take off down river and make me follow them hundreds of yards all the way to the surf.

This one grabbed a size 6 'Ard's Nine Three' tied on a little Partridge Bartleet hook while I was trout fishing about 3 weeks ago. It was almost 33" long and very fat for a ripe male. I was using my 1979 Far & Fine 5 weight and a Featherweight reel when this mistake took place. Same deal got him up, turned him and brought him in. The only worry here was the 8 pound fluorocarbon tippet I was using, like I said I was trout fishing............... Even though he was ripe I thought it was beautiful and showing no signs of deterioration as of that time.

Ard, after reading your post I was reminded of the great Silver I caught in Buskin Lake on Kodiak a few years ago. I posted it early on in this thread, but, because of your pic it bears re-posting :
