Weigh in Questions
« on: September 13, 2016, 04:19:00 PM »

I am new to this forum, and new to the Bass fishing clubs. my name is Karrie Shields and I am a member of the Arkansas High School bassers, we have started this club for all high school kids in Arkansas Schools 8th - 12th grade. A question has come up as to how do you measure and weigh in the fish at tournament weigh-ins. Is there 1 person that takes on this task, does every fish get measured and then weighed? what is the best and fair way to do this so we do not receive complaints or talk about not being fair.

any help is appreciated.

Hi Karrie. For all of the clubs I was ever in we had a set of digital scales and a tournament director who weighed all of the fish. The tournament director was elected by a majority vote of all members. We did not measure our fish. The tournament director's ruling was the final say in any disputes.

Hope that helps.  :)

If there is any question on legal length of any particular fish, then measure it. Otherwise just put all the angler's fish in one bag and weigh them. Always use the same measuring board and scales for each tournament. Also, designate 1-2 individuals to be the "weigh-master(s)" and have a designated Tournament Director. These individuals will resolve any disputes that arise. Have a set of rules so there is no question, review and update these annually.
