What do you weigh your fish with on the boat. I used a cheap scale and it showed way low and it caused me to lose a couple hundred bucks. Thanks

If you are measuring fish to cull, then any semi accurate digital scale will work, since you are compairing apples to apples ...

I don't understand how a faulty scale on your boat has cost you money. If you culled the wrong fish, you should have weighed them all on the same worn out scale....it would be accurate from fish to fish. Maybe not accurate to the tourney directors scale....but that doesn't matter.

Oh....to answer the questions, I use the cheap $40 Rapala from BPS....it's within .05 lbs of the certified meat market scales used at weigh-ins.

To answer your question I weighed it at 1.98 went weigh in and the number 10 fish on board was 2.10 so I put it live well and decided to weigh in later. It wound up weighing 2.44. If I had known that and weighed in first time I would have won 400 dollars instead of 200. Hence the 200 dollars difference. It was at the skeeters owne s tournament

If you want that kind of accuracy you need to buy a Cull M Rite.

The Rapala Digital works just fine for me. I believe it's around $59.

Ah.....yeh, that would not be cool. I see why you are wanting a more accurate scale.

In a normal fishing-skill tournament, what matters is weighing in the allowed number of fish with the most total weight. A cheap scale or even just a balance beam are sufficient for that task. Weigh in your best X number of fish.

In what I view as a gambling-based fishing event, you need certified weight for each single fish. These events are marketing/participation focused, which is different that the majority of competitive skill tournaments most anglers participate in.

You can get some calibration info for a run-of-the-mill digital fish scale by weighing some common items around 2, 5, and 10 pounds for instance. Then weigh those exact items on a certified scale to see how they compare. This would give you info to allow a decently accurate adjustment for the weight of a new item, such as a fish.
