    been wondering if we were to happen to catch a fish we thought was possibly a state record where in the heck could we have him weighed i dont know where any state certified scales are around and i know u have to have a biologist verify the species and whatnot , i live in new london near badin. i know 49 sporting goods is only a junky 50 lb scale and i know theres some state record blues in badin waiting to be caught and i just wanted to know where we could take one should we ever hook one that big? any help would be appreciated we have a big livewell just in case. Maybe just maybe one day it will happen, but we all wish for that lol. thanks guys.
