Estimating Walleye Weight

Recommended Posts

Guest

I was hoping someone could help me with a weight on a large Walleye I caught a week ago. The length was only 29", but the girth was 18.5". This was the roundest walleye I've ever seen. I have the standard conversion tables, LxLxL/2700 and LxGxG/800 but that's a difference of 2 1/2 lbs.

Does anyone have a good way to tell the weight of walleyes.

Thanks for the help Northlander. I have caught them longer, but never this round. The rest are all swimming yet, but this one is going on the wall.

I send a photo if I new how.

I was thinking around 11 1/2 as well

11.66 has got to be darn close, maybe even a bit shy, I have a 28 3/4" with an 18" girth and it was 11 3. You definately have a pig, congrats!

G*G*G*L is a good table that comes out to 12.406562
.406562*16= 6.504992 oz rounded to 7 oz.
12 lb 7oz eye is a great catch!
any way you add it up it's a piggy.
got any pics to share??

Yup... I'd say a solid 11+. I have one on the wall that was 30.5" with a 19" girth. Mine calculated out to 12.7#.

Nice catch!!! It's amazing how fat those fish are when you get into the upper teens for a girth measurement.

I'd be more than happy to post a pic, but I don't know how.

Any help on the subject?
