We suggest you contact your local Co-Op or DNR to weigh your fish. Weighing Must Take Place on 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.
Make sure to take as many photos as you can, especially of the current certification sticker. Video is preferred. Please make sure the scale is displaying zero and tared if you’re adding a container, rope, or anything else to help weigh the fish.
We will accept fished weighed on the Klau Industrial Digital Hanging Scale. (300 kg / 600 lb model SF-918) that you can purchase from Amazon.com. You will need to also purchase a CAP Barbell 2-Inch Olympic 2.5 LB Grip Plate from Amazon.com as well, or a similar style of weight with the weight designation clearly visible.
You will need to zero out the scale with the S hook on the scale and any weighing aids, like ropes, chains, etc. Next, weigh the 2.5 LB plate so we can see the weight. The weight is cast and may not register exactly 2.5 lbs. (2.4-2.6 lbs. is typical) Now, remove the 2.5 lbs. weight and weigh your fish. This must all be video recorded. Hang the scale from a stable location and then add the fish to the scale. Do not hold the fish and the scale. Please UPLOAD to and send us the link.

Make sure you keep the scale in a dry box.
