Tips on scales and weighing your fish:


1. We suggest you contact your local Co-Op or DNR to weigh your fish. Must be a Certified Scale. Put your fish on water and take it to get weighed. Just make sure to tell them Thanks! They are not required to do this service. 
2. Make sure to take as many photos as you can. Please make sure the scale is zero'ed out if your using a container, rope or anything else besides the fish. 

or 

3. We will accept fished weighed on the Klau Industrial Digital Hanging Scale. (300 kg / 600 lb model SF-918) that you can purchse from Amazon.com  You will need to also purchase a CAP Barbell 2-Inch Olympic 2.5 LB Grip Plate from Amazon.com too.

4. You will need zero out the scale with the S hook on the scale. Next, weigh the 2.5 LB plate so we can see the weight. Now, remove the 2.5 lb weight and weigh your fish. This must all be recorded.  Please UPLOAD to YOUTUBE and send us the link.
