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
