Weighing in the net is by far the best way to go for the fish if you are trying to get a ball park weight on a heavier Fish. We do that with all our fish tha look 60lbs and up

That sounds great, but how many fishermen are going to do hat? What can be done and what is being done are two different things. Big Sam is exactly right.

I can assure you on my boat he'd be weighed and returned quickly, unless I'm in a tourney. Can't control what others do. No pick up rides or hacked up, I weigh them and let them go where I catch them. American Weigh Scales and a few other places sell scales that go up to 150+ and they are certifiable.

Is that Shelby Stanga's boat? Looks like something he might have for fishing.

From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

Lol, if I landed a catfish that big, it would either snap my line, or my rod, and then probably pull the remainders of my pole and reel into the water back with it, never to be seen again. :P
