    its close but it depends on the fish and time of year for example the winter cat tend to have a little more fat on them come summer they lose some of it just as we or other animals do and we all know muscle weights more then fat. this formula fill definately get you in a good ballpark range though

    Thanks for posting this. My husband and I were talking about this last night. He works on a research farm for Univ. of TN and they use a hoof measurement to determine the weight of newborn calves in the field. It is very accurate.

    I punched in 54" lenght, and 36" girth for catfish, and it came up with 44#. I don't think it's very accurate imo.

    Thanks Ronnie I'm saving that to my fishing favorites list.

    I don't have a scale because its one less thing I don't have to worry about breaking, dropping over the side, leaving at home or lending to the neighbor, lol.
