That’s a dandy BobT. Good birthday gift for your BIL!
I agree with @DonkeyHodey, it’s all in the girth when they get over 20-21 inches. My heaviest weighed on a scale went 7.5 lbs and was 22 inches. It was the thickest smallie I’ve ever seen live. I couldn’t believe the weight so I weighed it twice.
Plus camera angles just can’t always do a fish justice. Me holding my fish made it look like a heavy 5. It looked more for real when my brother held it.

That one took my breath away; made me shake for a while.
Those toads will do that; congrats again!
