    You’re to honest. At 29.5 most would have rounded up to at a 10lber.

    I thought it was a misprint. Good fish.

    I think it was a good scale. Borrowed another boats scale, looked like a nice one. Never know how accurate they are though.

    See what happens when you upgrade to sparkles?

    Congrats, I've caught nothing but decent eater sized eyes and sturgeon in that hole you were fishing. I was in the blue Lund with my kids.

    Dandy fish!

    Putting a tape on it is easy enough, but scales can be wildly inaccurate. Captain Ahab goes by this formula, for weight, and it's apparently very accurate. Close enough for me, anyhow.

    girthXgirthXlength divided by 800.

    The boat I borrowed minnows from had a longer measuring stick. The one I have was the only one they had in the store when I got one. It's 24" and you can't see the FN lines on it. I have a feeling it's gonna end up at the bottom of the lake. These new digital scales are pretty accurate. Just weigh a few 20 oz bottles and test out your scale. All the newer ones I've tested are dead on.

    Great fish, glad to see you let it go to grow and make babies! I agree many scales are very inaccurate, last weekend a guy sent me a picture with a walleye maybe 20 inches but the scales said 8.9 Pounds, I don't think so!

    Very roughly, it's been my experience that a 25" fish is about 5 lbs. On average. Some over some under. Of course, everybody is catching 25" fish that weigh far more than that.

    28" fish is 8 lbs
    30" fish could be 10 lbs.

    And so on...
