Nothing recent but there's a fish that haunts me. A crappie. I knew when I caught it, it was a brute but it never occured to me that it could be a record breaker but the more I think about it, by crappie standards, that thing was HUGE. So that brings me to my question, what do you do in that case? Where would you take a fish to be measured, weighed and compared to previous record holders? Just curious- you never know when that info may come in handy.
Any scale certified for legal trade can weigh a fish for a state record, and two witnesses have to be present at the weighing. So basically any grocery store or butcher scale, or any shipping scale like a UPS store or Kinkos, etc. Then you have to have a DNR officer come certify it while it is in tact. Don't think the DNR has to see the weight, just certify species and whatnot.
