NEW Fish Weight Calculator Tool

I finally have this bad ass tool to provide to you readers and viewers out there who would like to know how much the fish you catch weigh. Even if you release all of your fish or ever some of them…you can now know how much they weight.

Simply record the length and girth of the fish you’d like to weigh and enter the numbers into my #Calculator tool. You can find it on the top right of this website under it’s own page by the same name.

This fish weight converter uses the standard and widely accepted formula of Length X Girth X Girth divided by 800 method.

Enjoy being humbled. Or maybe not. Either way you’ll be speaking with some intelligence as to the size of the fish you’re catching.

  1. The caluculator is a great thing to have, I have used a few different ones and they all say something different so its hard to say which is correct unless you use an actual certified scale and compare I suppose. I checked a few fish off of a fishing website which had pictures and LxG wieghts, all were 2-3 lbs higher than the calculator you have here. I think alot of people use the /750 instead of 800, but Im not sure.

    No doubt Abe there is no substitute for an actual certified digital. I called ODFW and asked what their creel counters use and that’s the one they told me. Certainly still a ‘ball park’ guess though. They said you can use the same formula for sturgeon but exchange the ‘800’ for ‘900’. If you want to send me the hotlinks of the other calculators I can try to break down the HTML code on the back end by submitting them to Sitepoint and we can see what we can come up with. I want this tool to be as accurate as possible…mostly for native fish reproductions. Thanks brother.

    Handy tool and gives the fish a break, especially if they are going to be released but you want to have a solid idea of weight. Sal

    Thanks Pop! I’m glad you find it useful. I was stoked to get something like that up on the site. I’ve wanted to do that for a while now. Thank goodness for HTML forums and helpful code writers.
