Good Fish Scale?

Recommended Posts

I have a digital berkley scale with a lip-grip and it seems to work pretty well for me. Cost me $50.

I tried every digital I could find and gave up on them because of inconsistent readings. I bought a Boga Grip and haven't looked back.

I've used both the Rapala and Berkleys. Right now it's the inexpensive Berkley. It's actually been pretty good. But eventually they seem to go bad. Whatever you get make sure you test it a few times every year by weighing stuff that's already been weighed on a certified scale, such as scales in a supermarket.

If you're unwilling to risk the possibility of your scale malfunctioning when you have a good fish to weigh, I'd carry at least two of the digitals or one high-quality spring scale.

Unfortunately, earlier this month, my partner's scale malfunctioned when he tried to weigh the biggest bass he ever caught and the guy he was with didn't have a scale of his own. Like the bumper sticker says (cleaned-up version), "Stuff happens."
