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

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
