Search For Certified Scales
Sometimes catching a record fish isn’t as difficult as finding a place to weigh it.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place on every lake where an angler could pull the boat up and get a fish weighed on certified scales? It sure would make it easier to set a lake or river record and still release a fish alive, which is what some anglers prefer.
Sometimes anglers have trouble finding a certified scale where the owner is willing to weigh a fish. GON hopes to make it easier. We are now beginning to compile a list of certified scales statewide where anglers are welcomed to weigh fish, and it will be published at gon.com.
A certified scale has a GA Dept. of Agriculture sticker showing that it has been inspected and checked for accuracy.
Help us compile the list. If you have a scale, or know of a business willing to be listed, email [email protected] or call 800.438.4663.
