I've seen a few 30" walleye caught and weighed. I think that chart is pretty heavy. The most I've saw was 10.40 and the least was 9.68. Other than the one my oldest son caught when he was 9 years old it only weighed 3.15. I think it was dieing. But did measure 30.5 inches. Two last year I seen both a titch over 30 and one was 9.15 and the other was 10.01. I did see a 35" that weighed 15.32 caught by Benatine creek. Nice but not over 17lbs like the chart says.

A long time ago my father told me that for Northwestern Ontario walleye:

Under 25" weight didn't matter.
25" = 5 lb.
26" = 6 lb.
27" = 7 lb.
28" = 8 lb.
29" = 9 lb.
30" = 10 lb.

Reading this thread and considering the variability of walleye, I think this may actually be about as accurate as any other chart.

My group has caught two 30" walleyes, one was a pre-spawn fish and it weighed 9-6, nearly 2 pounds lower than the chart below. I caught a post-spawn 30" walleye and although my scale wasn't working that year, I know it wasn't over 10 pounds either. In fact, I would have to say all of the fish we catch in Canada are significantly and consistently lower than the weights indicated in the chart shown below.

Walleye Length To Weight Conversion Chart (75th percentile fish, copied from In-Fisherman Online, Dr. Rob Neumann, 2016)

12 in 0.62 lb
13 in 0.79 lb
14 in 1.01 lb
15 in 1.25 lb
16 in 1.54 lb
17 in 1.87 lb
18 in 2.24 lb
19 in 2.66 lb
20 in 3.13 lb
21 in 3.65 lb
22 in 4.24 lb
23 in 4.88 lb
24 in 5.59 lb
25 in 6.36 lb
26 in 7.20 lb
27 in 8.12 lb
28 in 9.12 lb
29 in 10.20 lb
30 in 11.36 lb
31 in 12.60 lb
32 in 13.94 lb
33 in 15.38 lb
34 in 16.91 lb
This chart is almost bang on for a Walleye my son caught on August 25,2009 at around seven forty five in the evening while casting a 10 inch black bucktail with silver blades fishing for Muskie off the point of an island in about 15 feet of water on LOTW.This fish measured 33 inches long with a 16 inch girth and weighed 15 pounds.

For instance, if you compare the Canadian walleye actual weights against the Northland Tackle size chart, all the Canadian walleye weights are lower. We go in late May or early June, so maybe it's a seasonal thing.
The one excerption to this that I know of are the size of the Shoal Lake Walleye in Northwestern Ontario.On average they are easily the same size as the Walleye that are caught in the Southwestern Ontario waters of Lake Erie.I think there is an exception to every source of data we may come across.I believe a record Walleye, Muskie, Pike, ect., could easily come many bodies of water situated in the south or north.
