According to the fish calculator, your pike weighed18 pounds,10 ounces that is not exact, but good within 3 pounds +/- if you ask me. Nice Fish! :)

The calculator goes by a 21 inch girth for a pike of that length, so subtract 2 pounds or so, your looking at a nice 16 pound pike!

37's up here weigh about 13 - 14 lbs.

Thank you for the info.  We were guessing 14-15 lbs, it seemed real fat.  We don't catch them that much, and never that big.  It was nice because my brother who hasn't gone ice fishing in over 10 years was able to catch him.  Still have 12 inches of ice so I will be able to go for a couple more weeks, maybe I'll bet lucky too.   Thanks again.

Go to www.pikemasters.com and click on pike weight. Plug in the inches of the fish and it will give you an accurate weight.

I would say about 16 pounds. My friend caught a 41" pike out of Fort Peck reservoir that was 17 pounds and had a 17" girth.
