Length X Girth X Girth / 900
same for walleye, pike, trout, Gar, Barracuda, any other long bodied fish. Divide by 800 for any fish shaped more like a Bass than a pike

I gave the answer to this in that other post, but here it is again, I guessed on the girth of the bass as it wasnt included but 12 in. sounded right for a 19.5 Smallie so.... using the formula you get (L)19.5 x (G)12= 234 x (G)12= 2808 / 800 = 3.51 now the .51 is tenths of a lb not ounces, to convert it to oz. multiply .51 X 16 = 8.16 ounces, now dont ask me about the .16 I'm a fisherman not a math teacher ( LOL!) If I can say my fished weighed about/over 3lb 8 oz I'm satisfied
