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!!!!

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

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

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
