Hey fellas, I've just realized after reading another post, that a blue I caught several yrs ago might have been way bigger than the (inadequate) scale we used said he was. I can't come up with the pictures for the life of me, but I do remember he was 47 1/2" long and was PLENTY fat. I had memorized all the measurements at one time but have now forgotten all but the overall length. Anyway... what have some of y'alls fish weighed when the overall was around 48"? The only scale we could produce said the fish weighed 43lbs. But, the scale was a 30lb scale and it went all the way around and back to 13. I know that when a scale reaches its max. weight anything after that is way off---I just don't know how far off it could have been.
