Fish are always two inches longer,if not better than that, before they are caught ... Ben Hur Lampman
Well, guess again !
An 11" (8oz) Newfoundland Nor'east Brook brookie
hooked on a Zonker Muddler.
A 15" (1lb 6oz) Nova Scotia Woodens River brookie
hooked on an Orange Klinkhamer.
And here's an interesting formula found in a booklet put out by the Sportman Cigarette Company back in the fifties...
Square of girth (inches) x length (inches) ÷ 800 = approximate weight.
Example: (13 ² x 23.75) ÷ 800 = approx. weight
13 x 13 = 169 x 23.75 = 4,013 ÷ 800 = 5lbs approx.
