Flathead Question????

13 posts in this topic

I was wondering if someone could post a chart or something that tells me how much they weigh when they tell you inches and girth. Alot of people just tell you the lenght. I would like to know what they weigh. Thanks guys!!!!

length X length X width / 1275 = weight
Yes that too :P

weighing a large fish by the jaw (to me anyways) seems like an unnecessary risk to the fish ... no sense endangering the fish just to get a weight ... ideally a large fish should be weighed in a net, perhaps he doesn't have a net, or just doesn't have a scale

I leave them in the net and then deduct the net weight works great.

Agreed with the net and scale. Poundage down to the ounce is what I like to see.

Weighing by the jaw is fine up to a certain point...then I would rather pass on getting a weight (I do not own a net). I have weighed a 40 lb. fish by the jaw and will probably never do it again in that weight class.

I sure hope you don't let every last once of water drip out of your fish... laugh

we should start getting an average of water weight these fish are holding too then take off when you weigh them with your scale cool

And what do you do if one relieves itself in your boat. It might be tough to scoop up a pound of cr@p and put it back in the fish grin

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
