HI all I have a question !!!!? I was just wondering if any one out there knows a good formula, to get the best accurate size of a fish.
I am asking because the work derby I put on every now 13years to be exact, we have been running into the fat and skinny fish thing. What I mean by that is clearly the fat fish was the bigger of the two fish , but yet it was short in length by 1/8 and was very skinny, obviously had all ready spond and was on it's way to cleaning up, as we do not take any sponers or dirty dark fish.

The key for me being the one running things is to be fair to all, and that means finding the biggest fish, plus I find it helps with people not just bringing in any old fish but just fish that have a chance to win.
I thank you all in advance for your kind help.

mino.....are you talking salmon??

There is a formula kickin' around which is length by girth multiplied by some number divided by the birth year of your mother and square root of the date of your birthday :p........kidding. I'll see if I can find it as I know I searched for it a year or so back and posted it up on here.

mino....here we go. Just a quick google away. ;)

This is from the DFO site; http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/species-especes/salmon-saumon-eng.htm

Salmon weight can also be estimated by using the formula:
Length x Girth² (in inches) ÷ 800​

Metric conversion - 2.5 cm=1 inch; 1 kg=2.2 lbs.

Or.....if you're lazy and just wanna punch numbers into a website and not a calculator.........just go here;

or here

or here for a bunch of species;

or just take your pick from this google search;
