Aw heck, no bigger than it is, I'll just post it here.

 

Relative weights of bigger BG:

 

Length in inches.               Healthy Weight (Wr) in ounces.

10.5"...........................................16.6ozs

11"..............................................19.4ozs

11.5"...........................................22.4ozs

12"..............................................25.7ozs

12.5"...........................................29.6ozs

13"..............................................33.6ozs

 

Remember not to get too caught up in Wr. It's fine to benchmark your fish, and see how they stack up, but there are usually other factors which should be taken into consideration also.

I have a chart that appeared in an article co-authored by Bruce, that list not only standard weights, but plump weights as well, although it does indicate that is tailored towards male BG.

AH! Excellent! If you have the info up to 13, it would be excellent to have. It's better to have more than enough details, rather than lacking there-of.

Not quite Leo, the whole number portion of a particular fish's length are in the left vertical column, while the fractional remainder is found in the horizontal length column.

Example:

Your BG measures 9 and 3/4". Select the 9" horizontal column and follow it to the right until it intersects the 3/4" vertical column. The point where they intersect will give you the relative weight (Wr), or healthy weight, of what that BG should be. In this case that's 12.98 ozs.

If someone wants to see it, I can post a Wr chart for BG up to 13", although it is only graduated in 1/2" increments as far as length.

Awesome! I have a similar one from Alabama DFG, but it only got up to 8". Looks like anything above an 11" is considered an unknown weight factor?

Just curious, the upper set of numbers are the girth width?
