I know there's a halibut length to weight conversion table, and "Fishnphysician's" king salmon formula for finding the weight of a Kenai king, but does anyone know of a ling length to weight conversion table?
Maybe it would be too difficult to find a correct ratio since they always seem to have a stomach that's a LOT bigger than their gargantuan mouth.
I found an article (http://www.worldrecordsacademy.org/h...cord_70773.htm) saying the world record was 82.6 lbs., but only 55 inches long. Three of the five we caught yesterday were over 50 inches ( in the pic from l to r, 50", 54" and 56"), but just 43 lbs., 51 lbs. and 58 lbs. respectively:

If the world record was 82 lbs. and 55" it sure would have to have been really fat to weigh THAT much.
