Giant Iowa Bass

This giant bass was caught and released by my cousin Nate from a southern Iowa farm pond last weekend.  The only thing available to weigh it on were bathroom scales.  It was weighed on two different surfaces 2.5 hours after being reeled in.  One put the fish at 11 pounds, and the other at 9.5.  It was 24.5 inches long, and had a 19 inch girth.
