PB Walleye - Do you go by length or weight?

Haven't really targeted walleye that much, but I recently caught one while kayak fishing with a little swim bait.  Do people go by length or weight when they talk about their personal best walleye? I measured the one I recently caught.  My PB in length is 21 1/4, but I didn't have a scale to weigh it.  If you're interested, the video of this fish is below.  It's caught around the 11 minute mark of the vid if you're interested.

Length.  A 30" walleye can lose 3-4# of eggs just by spawning.  She'll still be 30" though.

The length is what’s recognized by record keepers and in all regulations. The weight can vary from fish to fish and not a true measurement. You can have a short fish that weighs a lot or a long fish that doesn’t.

I go by length as pretty much all larger walleyes get released on my boat.
