If we limit this to the average health fish and not the overweight or skinny one, what's going to weight more? 

A. 21.5 inch striper just under tourney limits

B. 18" true white bass

C. 20" wiper (hybrid)

My guess is the white bass will pack the most weight but that's based on eyeball and not scale weights.

C'mon guys. With all the fish caught in this lake and all the guys getting multiple bag limits someone must weight a fish every now and then to give me something just for my personal knowledge. Seeing so many fish of on pics just made me think the white (sand) bass pack a lot of weight in that lake.

Bass man Google striper weights by inch. Charts show all that info.

Magic, I did that and that is part of the reason I put this on here. Having only fished Tex a couple of times a few years ago my impression at that time is that the striper were well under weights that were published. For instance a 20" striper lists from 4-5.5#s. No way would any of the stripes we caught around the 20" have gone over 3#s IMO. A big white (sand) bass of say 17" I'm sure would have outweighed the striper at 20". I wish the fish we'd caught would have hit the weight chart on internet. May make a trip back (guided) and see if they are a healthier looking fish now.

Fish weight depends on timing. They bulk up before spawn and are usually much skinnier after spawn. I am sure there are other factors and times of year their weight will fluctuate.

These charts are proven accurate. Actual weighing, unless it a really big fish are a waste of time. wt_chart.jpg
