Approximate Bass Weight Table

Many visitors found an earlier post on calculating bass weights using a fish’s length and girth helpful but got a little confused by the math…

Since it is easier to keep a tape measure in the tackle box than worry about a scale and dead batteries, I prepared a little table to help determine an approximate weight for your catch…

Note the length and girth measurements are inches and weight in pounds…

Just find a length and girth of your catch in the appropriate boxes and the approximate weight is provided in the third box…

Note the red arrow pointing to the line with a length of 24″ and girth of 16″ resulting in a calculated weight of 7.2 lbs. A bass with those exact measurements was weighed on a certified scale and the scale weight was 7.15 lbs…

Pretty close in my book 🙂

Update!

I just made a change to the weight calculation spreadsheet on Google Docs and now you can calculate the weight of your prize catch!

Simply click on the following link, enter the length & girth (inches) into the appropriate boxes on Line 2 and the weight will show in the third box!
