    I'm looking for a good quality digital scale, but the only ones I'm finding at Cabela's and Bass Pro, only go to 50lbs. I'd like to find something that goes to 100lbs. I know berkely makes one that goes to 65, but the user reviews on bass pro arent that great. Any others that anybody knows of? I would consider a spring scale, depending on how accurate it is. Any info would be appreciated.

    Take a gander at Coffee Marketing... one of our sponsors. I got one at the National Gathering that will weigh 220#...

    Wally world had a close out nationwide on alot of gear this past winter/spring. I was able to get a Rapala brand 50# digital scale for $17.00, and I think that was a darn good deal! Check out ebay too. Ive gotten some good deals on gear there too. Just be careful who you buy from.

    I know a couple of guys that just take their regular digital scale from home when they go catfishing. They just weigh themselves with and without the fish to determine the fish's weight. Works great for big fish, I don't know how good it would work for accuratley weighing smaller fish.

    We too use the scales from Coffey Marketing and couldn't be happier with them. They are well worth the price not to mention Coffey Marketing is one of the wonderful sponsors of the BOC and offers the BOC members a special discount!

    Feel free to contact Gary Coffey with any questions you may have on the scales. You will find him to be extremely friendly and helpful.

    The 220 pound scale that our sponser sales is the best you will find and the price is great. It sells for almost twice what we pay in others areas.

    You will be pleased.

    I use the old time scales for weighing cotton sacks. They are spring loaded and fairly accurate and will weigh large fish. Have checked against digital scales and only off + or - 1lb.

    The Coffey scales are the absolute best, its great how they dipped the hooks in a plastic coat so that you wont be hurting the fish more than you need to. Best place to hook them to be weighed is just under the jaw through where the gill slit ends. Here are a couple of pictures to demonstrate.

    I believe mine came with a mini-manual inside the packaging. To see the Temperature I believe you push the "Mode" button when the unit is off, I'm pretty sure but I don't have it in front of me right now.
