    caught my new PB blue the other day and both of my 50lb scales got maxed out by it. They are suppose to be able to read 10-15% higher than the max but lose accuracy.
    The blue was 41.5" long and had a 32" girth
    here are a couple pics
    im the guy in the boonie hat, the other dude is a good friend of mine
    this fish was caught, photo'd and turned back. crazy thing was while we were taking pics of this fish another rod doubled over and we caught a 32lber in same drift

    Great fish James. Congrats on the new PB. Great day when you can catch two fish of that size back to back.

    I'm not going to guess...Its hard to guess blue cat weights. Those are a couple of nice blues.

    Great looking two fish. Congrats. If had to guess I would say 55 to 60 # the big fish.
