for HSB. I have combed the web, seen lots of studies, but havent found an actual chart. HELP!
It is probably in the current issue of PB. Maybe I will re-subscribe with better delivery results. Then again, I may go to the new Bass Pro Shop nearby.

The Wr for fish is a body condition factor (plumpness) and a calculation resulting from dividing the fish's weight by the standard weight for that species and then multiplying by 100. Are you asking for a chart showing standard weights for HSB? I doubt there is a chart showing the Wr as a standard for a fish species. However one could set up a chart showing the Wr of the fish in their pond and how the Wr (plumpness) changes over time OR how the Wr is different for the different sizes a fish species in ones pond. Example the 10"-12" bass are plump (hi Wr's) vs 17"-18" bass are skinny (lower Wr's).

Oops! RIght, Bill. Sorry about that. I will rename the topic. Looking for length vs. wt. standard for the species.

Std Wts for HSB are not in PBoss mag.
Here are a few standard wts for HSB from Am.Fish.Soc calculations from the reference provided by George.
12" =13.9oz
13"= 1 lb 2oz
14"= 1 lb 6oz
15"= 1 lb 12oz
16"= 2 lb 2 oz
17"= 2 lb 10oz
18"= 3 lb 2oz
19"= 3 lb 11 oz
20"= 4 lb 5 oz
Do you have them bigger than 20"?

thanks, ya'll. not bigger than 20, Bill. seems mostly 13-14 and 1.5 lbs. stocked sept 08 as tiny ones from Keo. I found a striper chart going down to 12. Not sure how the larger ones would equate. Seems the hybrids are a little chunkier.

Standard weight for an 18" striped bass is 2 lb 10 oz vs 3 lb 2oz for a HSB.
