# Striped Bass Length Age And Weight Chart

## Striped Bass - Chart for Estimating Weight and Age.

Average Weight of Striped Bass by length.

Another formula to estimate the weight of your striped bass.
length X length X length / 1,950.

Remember these charts are "Averages" Top of the bottom - Bottom of the top.
There are many factors that contribute to weight or lack there of.

The tables and graph below were developed utilizing length, weight and age data collected by the  (USFWS) Striped Bass Cooperative Tagging Program.

Rings on the scales (much like growth rings seen on a cross-section of a tree trunk) enable scientists to assign each fish an age.

Figure 1 shows the predicted weight for a given length of a striped bass by the pink line composed of squares.
The blue diamond shapes represent actual data points or the range of weights for a given length.

For example, the graph shows that the predicted weight for a 35" striped bass was 18 pounds, and samples ranged from 11 to 23 pounds.

1. What is the predicted weight of a striped bass measuring 30 inches? 40 inches?
Answer.

2. What are minimum and maximum weights of striped bass measuring 30 or 40 inches?
Answer.

Table 1 shows the range of ages that correspond to a given length interval. For example, a striped bass measuring 24 to 27 inches may be from 3 to 8 years old.

Forty-five percent of the fish sampled in this length group were 5 years old.

3. A fish measuring 30 inches most likely would be how old?
Answer.

Table 2 shows the range of ages that correspond to a weight interval.

For example, a striped bass weighing 7 to 10 pounds may be from 5 to 9 years old. Forty percent of the fish sampled in this weight group were 7 years old.

4. A fish weighing 15 pounds would most likely be how old?
Answer.

Notes:

Average" Top of the bottom - Bottom of the top.
There are many factors that contribute to weight or lack there of.
A good digital flat scale will put less stress on the fish than than those lip grip types and are more accurate.
A measurement should be taken while the fish is on a flat surface from the tip of the nose to the outer most point of the tail.
There is no substitute for an accurate scale.

It is more realistic maximum in the late fall after the striper has fattened itself up for the winter.
Feeding will slow when water temperature drops below 50 degrees, so in the spring the minimum weights are then more accurate.
This of course does not apply to a roe laden female.
There has been much discussion about the variants in weights.
