I will weigh these fish from now on since there is no reason to return them to the water.
But using a bass calculation chart ( there is no wiper chart ) it was somewhat heavier than your guess.

That may work. I was absolutely amazed when I started weighing my fish on a digital scale. For a year or so I thought I was catching 10+ pounders. People would see the fish and ask if it was an 11 or 12 pounder. I figured it was in the ten pound range, and like all wipers, it gave every indication on the end of the line that it was heavier than that. When I started weighing them, I found that most of my fish were about 4.5 pounds, though they occasionally got larger than 8 pounds and 6 punders were no uncommon. Now, my goal for the past two years has been to break the 10 pound mark, and despite fishing in a large, clean lake with lots of forage, and fishing at least once a week, 8.5 pounds is my largest. I am confident I will break that mark this year. I got a copy of the stocking report for the lake over the past 10 years, and I'm pretty sure that elusive fish is in there in spades. Weigh them. You'll be surprised.

I'm going to test weigh my scale to make sure it is giving me an accurate measurement before I start the year of wiper fishing.
I hope these fish aren't full of hot air !!

Test it with a gallon of water. YOu can Google the weight, but if I recall it is about 8.33 pounds. Hope that is helpful.

Here is a nice wiper caught by one of our club members last year. Mike Jones caught it from the DesMoines river.
Just shy of the state record.

That is a gorgeous fish! I don't know about Iowa, but a fish that size is a rare catch here, although our state record is, if remember right, 22 pounds, anything over ten pounds is a rare fish.
