Best BASS weighing scale

10 posts in this topic

Kind of an odd boring topic but maybe we'll all get valuable inputs here. We all have our mini tourneys and club days. We all need reliable and accurate weighing scales digital or otherwise. There's a multitude of choices and some go a bit on the pricey side.

What do you use? Do you wish you hadn't purchased that? If so, in favor of what instead?

The berkley culling scale works really well and is very accurate. It will keep track of you total weight as well.

I'm not usually a berkly fan, but I have the berkley scale, the one that remember weights and colors up to 10 fish i think. I have gone to the scale and been within an ounce more than once.. and I have put fish in my livewell and weighed them hours later to have them within a 1/4 oz.. For $30 you cant go wrong... In my opinon.

Are you interested in weighing in the boat or at shore for the official weigh in. In the boat I am a Berkley fan, accurate enough for me and the price is right. Have friends that swear by the X-Tool system but that is a little spendy for not much better results. On shore weigh in, our league uses a digital scale that was designed for weighing packages, it is water proof. Not sure where it was bought.

For in the boat to me I am just trying to get an idea which fish weighs more than the other so I do use a berkley scale and it does the trick. For a weigh in on shore I think the most important thing is that you all always use the same scale. So if one guy weighs a fish that is 4.5 pounds and the scale says 4 pounds thats OK as long as the next guys 5 pounder weighs 4.5 pounds. Does that make sense?

Balance beam is a must if you want to judge which fish is bigger of the two. A lot quicker as well.

zep-to be honest, I dont even know.. They are a very good company. My reasons are probably very selfish. Most if not all of my Sponsors are in compitition with Pure Fishing(berk). So , again, My reasons are selfish.. They are a very good company.

    • Been out on a few solo adventures lately. Finding some slab crappies mostly. Got into a mix of gills and slabs today! Fish have been hit and miss this ice season locally but if your willing to put the work in you can find em. Finding fish in that 20-30 fow area depending on the weather. Crappies range from 12-14" and the gill is 10". Most fish caught on plastic baits, a few on waxies. It's been a blast lately! Hopefully my luck keeps up! Have a look!! 
    • Very good-think for yourself.  Trust-to a degree-your gut.  Hemingway always bragged about his buhlsnick sniffer and most of the press people in my life have had excellent  sniffers. But you HAVE to believe in some media efforts simply because there is no value to them of lying about some things and frankly I doubt that many do with any regularity. As far as you 'why I have no idea" regarding political parties and those "invested" in them it is because they BELIEVE certain causes or philosophy's are what they agree with.  Nothing wrong with that. Communists fervently believe (or did) that their way was the best.  Libertarians the same and of course Republicans and Democrats espouse the basic beliefs of their party. There is nothing wrong with any of the PARTIES.....it is the PEOPLE who end up at the top of them. I have learned that one of the reasons for that is simple:   too many truly good and decent people pf talent and ability cannot bring themselves to run for office. It has become degrading and the reason is simple.....because the public trashes and bashes all politicians as "corrupt" and the politicians who ARE corrupt deter others from seeking office. We have some pretty sleazy people running this country and it is sad. No,   I do not know the answer. It is too late.
    • The great part is he doesn't own a house yet down here so if the plan is in-home daycare, he can look for a house that will suit his needs.   One thing I would do different if I were going to up and move but I had to stay around the metro area, I would move to the far north suburbs instead of the far south suburbs where I am now. I hate having to go through the cities in order to go up north for the weekend camping or fishing.
    • You should make us all some ribs so we can taste it. 
    • I like a lot of the new Shell's flavors that they have now but I got burnt out on regular Shell's back in college because I had 3 roommates that were all from New Ulm and they could buy returnable bottle cases really cheap. How ever many cases could stack in our apartment from floor to ceiling is how many we would go through each week.
    • The drawer rails you just want ones with "detent" on them. I think ours are set to 10lbs.   Here are pics for the doors.
    • You might want to try, if you haven't already, the app WAZE on your phone.   real time traffic and suggested alternative routes.  
    • I had a guy do that also on Sat in N.D. Pulled in with a Ford F350 and a big Ice Castle and started his  2000 watt All-Pro generator and set it in front of his pickup about 40 ft and went and got in his house. I went and asked him if he want to plug into my Honda 2000 so I didnt have to listen to its all afternoon.   But when I left we picked up and got everything ready. He never came out and I could see him looking out the window so I just unplugged his cord and picked up my generator and left. Never came out to thank me. But the guy next to me thanked me so he wouldnt have to listen to it.
    • Agree on both Stall & Stewart as huge bonuses....but I'm not going to give Fletch credit...it's all on those 2 players that they resurrected their game with new found youth.  It was a "wing & a prayer" from Fletch's standpoint....he had to do something, threw his darts on the wall and they stuck at Stall and Stewart and fortunately for Fletch it has worked out...and both were cheap signings....
