How to use a scale?

Get this kind and never worry about injuring the fish. Can be ordered from Cabelas.

I never liked weighing them by the gill area. Rather, I would put the scale hook through the jaw, immediately next to the hard outer lip so that lip supports the fish's weight.

But for the last two years I've used this inexpensive item from Cabela's, inserting the scale hook through a hole in the handle.

The biggest problem with using a scale is that weighing the fish almost always reduces its weight!

;D  Nice, Kent!  Sort of the fisherman's version of "ground shrinkage" for antlers.

RW is right about that - but what really reduces the weight is actually landing the fish rather than having it get off right at the boat ;D
