Here is a link to some good standard weight tables for various species of sport fish. Thanks to good efforts by a Pond Boss Forum member: DNickolaus. Tables are especially good because they include smaller sizes of the fish.

I see that the post I made many years ago linking to some great relative weight (Wr) charts is no longer available at those links.

These old links NOW DO NOT WORK:

Weight Length Chart 1 of 3 -- BG, PS, CP, BC, WC, RBS, YP & WE

Weight-Length Chart 2 of 3 -- Muski, NP, Am. Shad, Brown-Rainbow-Brook Trout.

Weight-Length Chart 3 of 3 -- LMB, SMB, SB, CC & Brown Bullheads

Regards,
Ken (Catmandoo)

3-26-2023 Note: These links are no longer working. I am trying to dig them up and save them to my computer, THEN post them here. I should be able to do that if I can figure out how to convert a PDF file to a JPG image. Look below, I was able to do it.
