Average Size Of Your Catches.

Recommended Posts

What are the average sizes of the fish that you catch. If you want answer what the average size is for each species of fish that you catch. Just wondering how big of fish most people catch on average.

As for me.....

Largemouth Bass =  Around 1.5 pounds. I catch a lot of dinks that are probably under a pound which realy do bring my average weight down for this species.

Catfish =  Around 4 pounds. Seems that most the catfish I catch are between 3 and 5 pounds. Occasionally I get a big one that is 6-7 pounds and sometimes I catch them around 2 pounds.

Carp = My biggest average fish size of any species. I am not jokeing my average carp is probably around 8 pounds. One of my local lakes is filled with common carp and I do not fish for them very often but love catching them. When I fish for them though it seems every other carp I catch is over 10 pounds. The biggest on was probably around 18 pounds.

Koi = 7-8 pounds. Only ever caught one.

Trout = Probably around 1 pound. I usually fish for them in this small pond that is stocked weekly and many people take the trout home so they do not grow big.

Bluegill/Sunfish = Probably about 5-6 inches. I dont fish for them anymore but occasionally catch one.

I will say my average for green fish is somewhere around 1.5 - 2.5 lbs.  My average for brown fish is about 1.2 - 1.6 lbs.

I catch some larger bass every once in a while (4 - 6 lbs.), but I catch alot more small ones.  ;D

Same here, plus, I don't fish many large lakes either.

i'd have to say around 1.5-2 also, I catch alot of small ones even with larger baits, it's amazing how 6in dinks will hit a 5in worm...

I fish for too many species:

LMB: 2 pounds. Been catching a lot of smaller ones around a pound each that's bringing down my average.

Smallies and spots: 1 pound. Those smallies will attack lures they have no business trying to eat.

Green sunfish: 6". Been catching a LOT of these while bass fishing

Bluegill and other sunfish: 4". I caught a LOT of these yesterday.

Channel catfish: 3#. Haven't been catfishing much this year.

Blue cats: Haven't caught any this year yet, but last year my average was 5#

Hybrid bass: 4#. Fun fighting fish

White bass: 1#. Tons of fight for the size. A 1# white bass will outfight a 4# LMB.

Depends on who is there to see  

I would say my average bass weighed around 2 lbs. this season. I still can not consistantly put bigger fish in the boat, the learning curve continues!

probably about 2 pounds

What?

Throwing a net for baitfish isn't included in calculating an average.

I don't know. The dinks I catch won't fit on the scale.

6 inches is average right?....... :-/ ;D

It's interesting you say this.  I find that guys tend to exaggerate quite a bit in both.  It's amazing how many "2lber's" people catch when they don't have a scale or choose not to use it.  I'd say my average is closer to 1 1/4 pound when you figure all the 10-13 inchers I bring in for every keeper.

My question is: How do you know guys exaggerate in BOTH?!?! ;D :P jk jk jk

I really do think that my average is around two pounds though RW, I'm not like FC, I don't go out and chuck big baits all day every day, in fact, I would say that throughout the course of the whole year, I probably throw conventional baits 75% of the time. So if I catch 100 fish and 90 of them are around 1.75 and catch 10 between 5 and 10 for a 7.5lb average there, I come up with an  average of 2.32 pounds.

Ceph, I'm not gonna tell how I get the "other" average, LOL!

HEY CEPH:  I stand corrected I did not take into count non-keepers ( even though I throw em all back) I consider any trip skunkked if I do not boat at least one keeper. So with that in mind it would drop the weight between 1 1/4 lb to 1 1/2 lbs.  GOOD POINT ;)

I wasn't picking on you.  I just know the guys I talk to tend to call anything even close to a keeper a 2 lber.  It's like they never catch anything less than that  ::)

I would say about 1.5-2lbs average, but this year I have been fishing a new pond that spits out an insane avarage, I would say above 4 lbs.  Went there with Hawghunter and his buddy one weekend and I think we had 12 fish over 4 lbs out of this pond and 4 smaller...if you get a bite you may want to hold on.  :D

Sounds like the type of pond we all dream of finding!!!!

JImzee,

It took me a long time to get used to 2 or 3 good bites in 3 hours time...I was use to alot more than that but this pond makes it worth casting your shoulder off.  We also spent the majority of a few weekends at this pond...I wish Darrin would chime in to make me not look like an over-exaggerater.

I don't think you have over exaggerated one bit. ;) I fished in a pond on a golf course about 9 yrs. ago. One Saturday in early June, I had caught 75 fish from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm. :o The fish ranged from 6-7 inches to 6.5 pounds. Best day of chasing green fish I've ever had in my life. Those hidden away ponds can be a special treat. They were all caught on a buzzbait. ;)
