So what is the best scale for weighing fish in the boat, I am talking for Salmon, is a digital or spring scale best? I am thinking that I need something to go up to around 60 LBS. or is it just best to guess and always have big fish LOL.
There is certainly a reason I dont own a scale, haha, the big fish idea sounds about right. Anyways, I think both types of scales are accurate if you buy a quality product, and check it against a scale you know is correct often. But im no expert, thats just what ive been told by others who are much more informed than I.
The secret to weighing fish has nothing to do with the type of scales. The technique for impressive fish is to either stuff them full of lead weights...or if you can get away with it, pull down on the fishes tail while holding its head attached to the scale up out of the picture
