I got a 28-29" blue yesterday that was just over 12#. So the chart seems right to me.

Pete,

Here's one I found buried deep on this site, notice the link for the bass size chart at the bottom of the page as well.

I took a look at the chart, and it is way off. I guarantee you that a 34.6 inch bluefish does not weigh 19 pounds - unless it has a belly full of lead. My largest chopper was 18.85 pounds - a very fat 39-incher. Second biggest was a somewhat thinner 16-pounder, that was 41 - yes 41 - inches long.

Tony - I just saw your post about your 28 - 29 inch bluefish. With all due respect, I would check the scale that fish was weighed on. I'm not trying to be a wise guy, or doubt what you reported - I just think that the scale might be off a bit.


...that's some weakfish boy...

Don't forget the "swimming heads" that are caught offshore early in the season. Those fish would way 30 - 50% more in October.
