Striped Bass growth statistics

( New England - Chesapeake bay studies)

Age Your Fish

Notes:
Average size is just the median of both weights. It is more realistic maximum in the

late fall after the striper has fattened itself up for the winter.
Feeding will slow

when water temperature drops below
50 degrees, so in the spring

the minimum weights are then
more accurate. This of course

does not apply to a roe laden
female. There has been much discussion

about the varients in
weights. There are many factors that

contribute to weight or
lack there of. A good digital flat scale will
put less

stress on the fish than than those lip grip types
and are more accurate.

A measurement should be taken while
the fish is on a flat surface from the tip of the nose to

the outer most point of the tail.

There is no substitute for an accurate scale but to estimate the weight

of your striped bass the formula is thus.

Length
X length X length /

1,950.

For example: a 30 inch
striped bass weighs ~ 14 pounds

30" X 30" X
30" /

1,950 = 14

Use
your calculater and the above formula for a fair approximation
Margin of error up to 6%

The Formula for following
species is thus

Bass weight = (length x length x girth) / 1,200

pike weight = (length x length x length) / 3,500

sunfish weight = (length x length x length) / 1,200

trout weight = (length x girth x girth) / 800

walleye weight
= (length x length x length) / 2,700

For example, you
catch a 16 inch walleye. Using the formula for walleye
above: (16 x 16 x 16) / 2,700 = 1.5

pounds. Your walleye weighs
approximately 1.5 pounds.
